what are them other birds in the background?
They look like one of the corvids, although difficult to tell from the
photo. Do you get Ravens in this area?
Good question! I have a feeling the one on the right is a Buzzard (Buteo buteo) but I'm not sure about the one on the left - the picture was taken a while ago. When I first noticed them, my first though was that it was a crow, but it doesn't really look like one; Does it?
No ravens in this locale (to the best of my knowledge) However, crows and jackdaws are common. If anyone else has any suggestions, I'd greatly appreciate it.
I would be amazed if a few Ravens are not seen in your area, as they are spreading east quite quickly.
These birds are both corvids, and possibly Rook might be the answer, as the silhouette looks better for that, to me. the right-hand bird is not a Buzzard...the head is too long and the wings are not broad enough...etc. Better just to leave them as corvids, I think.
My Flickr photos...
If your first impression for the bird on the right was Buzzard, then
the bird to the left is probably a crow escorting the Buzzard off its patch.
Yes, that's exactly why 'Crow' sprung to mind.
Hi Ian, you may very well be right about both being corvids. Buzzard, on my part, was really just a guess. As for Ravens, however, I am sceptical: the habitat around here just isn't right.
