Groupies and a murder

This flock of buffleheads was fishing in the Baikie Island lagoon. I took several photos, from different vantage points; in each one, almost all of the females were following along in the wake of the lone male.

Popular guy.

And overhead, there was a minor murder.

About one tenth of the murder, heading west for the evening. As they do.

These were crows; even if I hadn't seen them, their voices were clear. "Caw, caw, caw, caw!" But in the photo, with the afternoon sunlight shining sideways on them, they gleam, so that they look partly white.

  1. I'm not sure if the story is true, but around here they say crows live in town and ravens live in the bush. We have a resident pair of ravens at the cabin, but I've never seen a crow. - Margy

Also, I have word verification on, because I found out that not only do I get spam without it, but it gets passed on to anyone commenting in that thread. Not cool!
