No, Julia, it's owls that hoot. Rooks "kaah"Grin!
Wikipedia says, "Rooks are as clever at making and using simple tools with their beaks as chimpanzees are with their hands".
A super closeup of the bird's head, exceptional detail.

Superb shot of one of my fav birds (full of mystery and dark foreboding)SmileSmileSmile
Of all your wonderful birds, this one I think is my personal favourite. As others have said, he (she?) radiates intelligence, experience, scepticism and a certain amount of menace.
