Wiki tell us:

The Western Jackdaw (Corvus monedula), 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, which mainly differ in the colouration of the plumage on the head and nape. Linnaeus first described it formally, giving it the name Corvus monedula. Later analysis of its DNA shows that, with its closest relative the Daurian Jackdaw, it is an early offshoot from the genus Corvus, and possibly distinct enough to warrant reclassification in a separate genus, Coloeus. The common name derives from the word "jack", meaning "small", and "daw", the native English name for the bird.

Culoarea ochilor este superba.

Hi Christina

Nicely isolated and sharp image of the jackdaw with a funny look and pose. The beak is such a prominient feature of any bird that any front on POV always appears different than the more common sdie-on POV, and this is no exception.

Liebe Christina,
Diese Dohle schaut nicht gerade liebenswürdig in die Welt! Sehr natürliches und lebendiges Bild. Gut präsentiert mit dem ganz grünen Hintergrund. Gute Bildschärfe auch. Herzlichen Dank auch für deinen netten Besuch in meiner Galerie.
Ein schönes Wochenende wünscht Euch beiden
