The Jackdaw (corvidae)
A small member of the crow family and an expert flier.Jackdaws breed in most of Europe except in Iceland and N Scandinavia. In NE Europe only in summer. Flourishes elsewhere in towns,parks,woods, and farmland.
This particular bird was shot at Bushy Park in the Autumn.
Please accept my very grateful thanks for the generous response to the Raven and my particular thanks go to Brian65 for giving his UA.

Curious looking bird! They are rather clever!
There is one in Hyde Park that comes to eat with the pigeons whe I feed them in the morning... It takes bread morsels one by one into his beak until he can't pick up anymore and then goes to the next tree brunch to feed at leasure... Grin

Excellent shot of this clever, handsome bird.
We had a semi tame one that used to visit my school and
take food from our hands.
