Jackdaw (corvus monedula)
Captured on a recent trip to Bushy Park. Loads of these in that place; mostly spending their time picking the ticks from the backs of the deer. Very useful in that respect I would think. Got rather a malevolent look about him I feel, particularly in the eye. Quite pleased to get this one posing in a tree.
Hope you like him.
Grateful thanks for the generous response to the Fallow Buck and particular thanks to Andy (andychat) Ray (rayme 330) and Steve (sparrowhawk) for the UA.

Well captured with good detail in the black plumage, Ron: he does have a rather mean look.

Such endearing and relatively tame birds, I kept one as a pet for several years as a kid, well when I say I kept as a pet, that's not strictly true, he kept me as a pet and he was the wild one and used to come and go into the house as he pleased.....Such characters!

He does have a certain disapproving look - obviously very camera shy. Excellent and fun capture with super detail.

A fine shot of this shady character, I like the pose and detail you've captured in the plumage. I remember a pair of these mobbing epzer gary_d when he was sat eating his sandwiches at Slimbridge, when one distracted him the other pinched one of his sandwiches from his lunchbox and flew off with it up a tree!Grin

A very handsome bird Ron, even if he does look a bit sinister -(my first impression was that he looked thoughtful, but maybe they're sinister thoughts!)
