    1. Orvus Ossifragus…a slightly more diminutive version of the regular crow– found strictly along the East Coast where it carries on the usual crow business. Voice sounds a bit hoarse, like it’s been nursing a cold.

    1. Thanks Mary-Ann. Yes these birds are up really early and I think they were eyeing a nearby dumpster behind a restaurant. Indeed, the moon is still close to that phase.

  1. You do know your crows! I always liked hearing that nasal caw near the water. I like the way the circles of extra wire mimic the round moon, and the crows arranged themselves so nicely, didn’t they?

      1. A very late reply! Yes, for sure! Trying to learn new birds now! You can imagine how much a long time east coast birder would miss certain sounds and sights…mockingbirds singing, cardinals too, great egrets and snowies…but I have a pileated coming to suet just a few feet from a glass door, how’s that!

  2. Just lovely..all about to sing..I always think how great it is with moon shots that it’s everyones moon – so shining on those birds here in this perfect shot, and also shining on my fields here now..

  3. This is better than a lot of similar cinematographic scenes in The Birds. Too bad you were only 8 years old when Hitchcock was looking for a cinematographer.
