Jackdaws - Corvus monedula The next morning I visited the place where the wallcreepers are nesting. By 9am, 40-50 of these pirates attacked the rock massif. They were checking in and out every cavity and hole. After about 15 min they disappeared, but until 13.30, the wallcreeper did not appear. And I had to leave - 470 km ahead to my home!

The Western Jackdaw , sometimes known as the Eurasian Jackdaw, European Jackdaw or simply Jackdaw, is a passerine bird in the crow family. Found across Europe, western Asia and North Africa, it is mostly resident, although northern and eastern populations migrate south in winter. Four subspecies are recognised. It was originally described as ''Corvus monedula'' by Linnaeus, but analysis of its DNA shows that, with its closest relative the Daurian Jackdaw, it is an early offshoot from the genus ''Corvus'',.. more
