Camera Critters - 02-07-09 Crows nest?

Camera CrittersThis meme is all about photos of animals/critters.

Click on the photos for more detail.

I noticed these nest-like structures under the bridge down by the river the other day. On closer inspection, I don't think they're nests. They look like accidental mini eco-roofs growing out of the pipes. The crows loved them though - I think they stash some treasures in there.

Can you tell what this crow has in its mouth? It looks a bit like a cell phone.

Impressive talons.

Great crowshots! Really like the first one.

Flo said...

Wow, fabulous pictures. They either let you get pretty close or you have a fantastic lens.

You can find mine over at Feather, Fur, Fins

Terri said...

Thanks Carolina and Flo. The zoom is a 55/200. Of course, I want a bigger one!

That looks like a cell phone to me too! I think this crow is a really clever one, up to date with all the modern technology! She's just making sure that the little ones can call her when they need her. Maybe she's planning on installing a little notebook or even a laptop to blog about the progress that is going on in her nest?
The ABC challenge huh? Starting with G? Now YOU are in over your head girl!!!!!

Wonderful photos - and yes, I now use a 28/300 lens to get right into the trees to see the birds :)

My critters are birds this week.

Carletta said...

I love these shots!
I especially like the composition of the first two. That is really neat looking the way the grass is growing there.

I really like that second to last pic with the two crows against the sky.

What wonderful photos. I have only recently started seeing a few again. They seem to of been missing for a few years.

Have a great week.

Terri said...

Grammy, they must have all come here. We have crows everywhere here. I think they're fascinating animals. So smart.

Thank you all for your comments.

They are beautiful shots. Crows are not everyone's favourite but I think they are beautiful birds.

Dianne said...
