Jackie Jackdaw

My wee squirrel friend was in and out of the feeder yesterday and I watched him for ages from the kitchen window, eventually deciding to get the camera out and try and get some shots of him. Anyway, I was hiding behind the bike shed, waiting for his return when this jackdaw landed on the roof above me ... so I turned my ready camera on him, just before he flew off. My shots of the squirrel were pretty hopeless, and so Mr Jackie Jackdaw graces 365 this morning instead!
Wonderful detail in your shot and lovely comp. This is a beautiful bird! I don't think I've ever seen one of these shared here before. His colors are lovely. Are these common birds in your area? You've captured him beautifully.

A very bright and alert bird! Jackie could be female or male!

He’s really rather fine close up!

They are such remarkable birds....the bane of our lives at certain times of the year, but very clever, and quite beautiful close up.

Good to see this close up of a jackdaw.....I was reading our bird book this morning & thinking what does a Jackdaw look like but the picture was really small....those Collins pocket books aren’t so big! He you are with the perfect photo & I’m so impressed with this bird...not half as black as I expected! He’s blue!

Splendid Jackdaw in perfect light...setting off his plumage.

Nicely caught but don't leave any jewellery lying about!
January 4th, 2021  
Wow nice lighting and markings on the bird!
January 4th, 2021  
He looks rather wicked...nice lighting and capture

Great close up

Nice sharp capture of the eye and feathers.

That eye is quite piercing.

@elatedpixie They are extremely common with us, and VERY noisy. I'm not a fan, but this one landed in the right place at the right time to feature on my 365 page! :-) I admit he's fairly handsome - they're a member of the crow family.

@jantan Yes, they're a pest, and we're always trying to get bird feeders that they can't get into. Clever blighters they are too!

@happypat Yes, and I didn't tamper with the colour. Bluer than he looks from a distance, that's for sure!
January 5th, 2021  
What a wonderful capture, crisp, clear and detailed
January 5th, 2021  
Beautiful portrait.
January 6th, 2021  
They appear wonderfully regal… And what a piercing stare!
January 6th, 2021  
That's a lovely photo. He's a rather handsome character.....haven't seen one quite so close up.

Good shot- he's giving you his best side- but not for long!
