The Same Family: Blue Jays, Ravens and Crows
Crow In Flight
Blue jays are squawky, flighty birds and when they spot you in the forest everything else is alerted as well . Nevertheless, they're colourful, and this one was almost posing. The crows here are huge and do quite well from their scavenging. As well they are beautiful fliers. The raven is very well established in aboriginal legend as a trickster, and its a pleasure to see him on our journeys.
