Mirror Image.


A pair of friendly [Western] Jackdaw (Corvus monedula) spending a bit of quiet, quality time together. From a distance the untrained eye of the layman often thinks they are just a dark 'crow' but when you get up close you can appreciate their distinctive and contrasting head pattern plus their inquisitive grey-white eyes.  FAB.

  13. Great picture - I always did think these were under appreciated birds.
    The Cape Barren Goose has made a bit of a recovery, but its had some help in that regard.
