THE OLD CROW, THE BLUE CROW, THE AMERICAN CROW, THE SHERYL CROW (SOMETHING TO CROW ABOUT PHOTO BLOG)



NEWS FROM THE OLD CROW!:
Hi Everybody!!
Yes, I have something to crow about:  I Love My Camera! My Mom tried to get me into digital cameras and computers before she left, but I had no time for electronic stuff like that. For her, I got my first digital camera 7 years ago. When I came on the superhighway, Picasa Web Albums is where I landed and began to share my Nature Photos with the World. With Picasa Web Albums is a program called Picasa. It is an editing and sharing program for your photos which is a free download from Google. These programs changed my life in a positive way by meeting all of You!
So tonight your photostudy is created in the editing program of Picasa. Yes, I blued the crow! In the following pics, I used these edits: I'm feeling lucky, color saturation, sharpening, tint, graduated tint, soft focus, lomo-ish and vingette. 
I encourage all of You to get a camera, get on the internet and go with the Google Experience. It could change your lonely life for the better as it has for me! I love Google Earth!  Enjoy!

American Crow

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia


The American Crow (Corvus brachyrhynchos) is a large passerine bird species of the family Corvidae. It is a common bird found throughout much of North America. In the interior of the continent south of the Arctic, it is referred to as simply "the crow."
It is one of several species of corvid that are entirely black, though it can be distinguished from the other two such birds in its range—from the Common Raven (C. corax) by size and behavior and from the Fish Crow (C. ossifragus) by call (but see below). It is also distinguished from the Raven by its smaller, more curved bill than the parallel bill of the raven, and its squared tail.
American Crows are common, widespread and adaptable, but they are highly susceptible to the West Nile Virus. They are monitored as a bioindicator. Direct transmission of the virus from American Crows to humans is not recorded to date, and in any case not considered likely.

Behavior

[edit]Diet

The American Crow is omnivorous. It will feed on invertebrates of all types, carrion, scraps of human food, seedseggs and nestlings, stranded fish on the shore and various grains. American Crows are active hunters and will prey on micefrogs, and other small animals. In winter and autumn, the diet of American Crows is more dependent on nuts and acorns. Occasionally, they will visit bird feeders.[14] The American Crow is one of only a few species of bird that has been observed modifying and using tools to obtain food.[15]
Like most crows, they will scavenge at landfills, scattering garbage in the process. Where available, cornwheat and other crops are a favorite food. These habits have historically caused the American Crow to be considered a nuisance. However, it is suspected that the harm to crops is offset by the service the American Crow provides by eating insect pests.[14]

[edit]Reproduction

American Crows are monogamous cooperative breeding birds. Mated pairs form large families of up to 15 individuals from several breeding seasons that remain together for many years.[16] Offspring from a previous nesting season will usually remain with the family to assist in rearing new nestlings. American Crows do not reach breeding age for at least two years.[17][10] Most do not leave the nest to breed for four to five years.[16]
The nesting season starts early, with some birds incubating eggs by early April.[18] American Crows build bulky stick nests, nearly always in trees but sometimes also in large bushes and, very rarely, on the ground. They will nest in a wide variety of trees, including large conifers, although oaks are most often used. Three to six eggs are laid and incubated for 18 days. The young are usually fledged by about 35 days after hatching. Predation primarily occurs at the nest site and eggs and nestlings are frequently eaten by snakesraccoonsravens and domestic cats. Adults are less frequently predated but face potential attack from Great Horned OwlsRed-tailed Hawks,Peregrine Falcons and eagles. They may be attacked by predators such as coyotes or bobcats at carrion when incautious although this is even rarer.[14][19]
