Corvids Galore

Nothing more guaranteed than a load of muck spreading to bring in the corvids, in this particular field a mixed bag including Rooks, Carrion Crow,and Jackdaws
They say there is a pecking order, but does this apply in a mixed flock, or just when there is a single species feeding.?
Waiting on the sidelines.

When is it going to be my turn.
A touch of rural England

  3. Beautiful peaceful looking countryside but I imagine it wouldn't be quiet with all those corvids around.

  6. Hi Gordon I am sure there probably is a pecking order although I don't know if Corvids have one. I did a bit of an experiment with some gulls one day and there diffinately was a pecking order and it was not as I had imagined.

  9. The rural countryside is so beautiful!!! I find trying to figure out that whole pecking order works quite fascinating; I see this often with the vultures. Take care, Gordon!

  10. A mixed bag indeed - crows of all sorts are good to watch.

    Have you read Crow Country by Mark Cocker - its a very good book.

    Little pulse of homesickness at the last two images!

  15. Thumbs up for the views of rural England and the countryside would be a poorer place without the intelligent Corvids.

  16. Yes, i've noticed the corvids beginning to form flocks, but as to your question....? Nice part of the world you live Gordon.

  17. Gordon, I really enjoyed your post! I'm not sure how or even if the pecking order applies to flocks of Corvids. If I find out, I'll let you know.

    What beautiful countryside you live in!
