Google / Wikipedia sez it's a common Hooded Crow, found throughout Europe. Only my second trip over there, so like Tina says, it was new to me.

When I went to Quebec a couple of years ago, I was looking for spots to bird along the way. I noticed up by Sault St Marie there was a Black-billed Magpie stake out (usually a blind set up for a really rare bird that returns to the same area). I thought, what, those are all over? I looked up the species on allaboutbirds, the Cornell site, and turns out no, they are only out West. While I see them all the time, if you live in the south or east, you almost never will. The flip side of that is we don't get Northern Cardinals out here, and Blue Jays can be found but not in numbers like they are out east. It really makes you appreciate what you have sometimes to think about that others don't get to see it.

It is always interesting seeing the different birdlife when you are travelling. The variations on the species you have at home can be particularly interesting.

They do exist!


Wile, in the case of this little owl, we were at a local art foundation, a working ranch where they have artists in residence and an art gallery. We were meeting with the foundation, an Audubon person, and one of the artists. She's going to use one of my photos in one of her works, which is neat! Anyway, they knew where the nest was, so we went out to take a look. There are two owlets and at least one parent still around. We could see one parent and one owlet. These have branched, meaning they've left the nest and will start real flight soon. But usually it's just having my ears and eyes open.
