#OnThisDay (2020) I went downtown and caught a crow after multiple reports on a local bird group of it being injured and unable to fly.

Catching a crow isn't easy. It couldn't fly, but it sure can run.

Anyway, I took it to the vets to get a health check and he got released shortly afterwards in a local park.

I bought a coconut 🥥 birdfeeder the other day as a little treat for the small birds that visit our back garden. Usually the seagulls take over and scare the little birds away.

But we have had so many visitors today and they've almost got halfway through the treat for them. It's lovely to see them enjoying the food in the coconut shell.

Last but not least in the Corvidae-family, it's my favourite (maybe of of all the #birds?):

The crow! The #goth and #mysterious and whimsical at the same time (I love the way they hop ^__^).

Anyway, have a good rest of your week!

(Still no #crow emoji … 😾)

Hi. I am a Japanese writer, editor, designer, translator, and birdlover.

I am independently publishing in Japan the books about natural agricultures based on the Microbial Anthropological thoughts.

And I'm writing essays as own life work that named "Homo rehabilis: who reduce themself to Nature".

https://homorehabilis.medium.com/

Bird is my symbol of Soul or Time itself, and the birds are my intimate friends in Nature.

I usually write essays in Japanese and if you are interested in the original version you can read it on the following site.

https://homorehabilis.blogspot.com/

Thank you for your reading.

Trying to get a close capture of the #HornedLarks requires a little patience as they startle easily. So you sit and wait until they return.This little male Lark was in the field foraging for seeds when it spotted me, gave me the look, and with the "horns" up it reminded me of the Devil.

The colorful American Kestrel falcon is the smallest raptor in America. The American Kestrel packs a predator’s fierce intensity into its small body. It's one of the most colorful of all raptors especially the male with it's slate-blue head and wings which contrast elegantly with his rusty-red back and tail.

This #CommonGrackle is not happy with me as I chased it away from the feeder and it has a little attitude. They are big, have big appetites, and they can monopolize your bird feeders. No wonder so many #birdwatchers think of them as big bullies.Not my favorite bird but they have gorgeous colors.

When on vacation I am out and about at sunrise hoping for some great bird shots in the early morning light. I absolutely love the Pileated Woodpecker and was thrilled to see it in the Oak tree in golden light just after sunrise. He was just so handsome and the golden glow enhanced and deepened the colors of not only the woodpecker but the foliage and rough bark as well. The leaves were just starting to turn color in the fall. A Pileated Woodpecker is a very large, striking, forest bird with red crest, white and black plumage that sounds like a jack hammer while searching for food in the forest. You can hear them for sure but as soon as you get close enough for a shot, they're  usually gone.

This Common Loon with wings open and beak pointed to the sky while the juvenile waits for food was a resident of the Moon River Ontario Canada, hence the title Loon On The Moon. This family very rarely left the part of the river where we were staying for the week. Loons have long been considered by many North Americans as beautiful and special, symbolizing wilderness and solitude. Many cottage-goers and campers would feel their trip was incomplete without seeing a loon or listening to its haunting call.
