Am Crows at Las Vegas NWR

I haven't posted for a few days because I am traveling. I took these pics of American Crows at the Las Vegas National Wildlife Refuge near, surprise, Las Vegas, New Mexico. They were part of a large dispersed flock of several hundred birds feeding in a corn field. It's a good sign to see a good sized flock of crows since this species, as well as other members of the Corvid family, took a hard hit in the past several years from the West Nile Virus.

My new DSLR does take better quality pics, though there are a number of disadvantages compared to my little Panasonic Lumix. You can double-click on the large pic to enlarge it and get a lot of nice detail including great views of it's legs and claws. SeEtta
