Crows of The Vermilon River
Carrying Carrion or Recent Kill
Close-Up of Head
The much maligned crow is both scavenger and hunter. In addition, he's an attractive fellow and an incredible flyer, able to ride the thermals at will. According to most bird books these birds are probably the most intelligent of the birds along with their relatives, the Raven. The photo showing the crow in flight with his kill is somewhat disappointing in quality but interesting just the same.
