Corvus corax - Kuzgun / Raven
So this time a flying crow :) In Poland we say it "kruk" :>
I like this picture a lot. Interesting is - how did you take such photo? Were you flying next to this bird? Or maybe picture was taken from top of some mountains?
By the way, interesting note, I had no idea that there are so many Corvus species in Turkey!
Dear Ahmet, all the best in new - 2010! :>

the attribution of this difficult black color is very good, shiny and with very good details, really froze the moment in one beautiful pose that leaves the impression of movement, it's a great in flight shot!
keep photographing! TFS

A wonderful in-flight capture of Corvus corax. The side POV shows the features and wings in a great position in fine lighting. The massive bill of this our largest passerine, is well shown.
Thanks and best wishes to you dostum!

I'm afraid I will never learn to distinguish a crow from a raven! At least now I know the raven is in the crow family. A fantastic in-flight shot with marvelous clarity. The face and wings are beautiful. The sparkling eye on the black face is superb. Wonderful against the perfect blue sky.
