Do You Like My Auriculars? My corvid friend has finished moulting and in this “pose” the auriculars or feathers covering the auditory opening are quite evident. It’s the first time I have actually noticed them.  Canada,Corvus caurinus,Fall,Geotagged,Northwestern crow Click/tap to enlarge Promoted

  6. Fantastic, "thinking" pose. Love this photo, and this corvid. Must certainly have a given name, perhaps "Spock." Posted one month ago
    1. Thanks Erin. I believe he is actually thinking that instead of taking its photo I should be giving him a peanut from my pocket. As for a given name... Spock, have to try that out. Posted one month ago

The northwestern crow is an all-black passerine bird of the crow genus native to the northwest of North America. It is very similar to the more western forms of the widespread American crow , but it averages slightly smaller with proportionately smaller feet and a slightly more slender bill. This taxon is reliably identified by range only.
