Lookout Crow


Perched high in the bare branches, a crow stands guard over a flock of Wild Turkeys feeding below.

Watching this small flock of Wild Turkey gobblers feeding on a dreary November day, I felt some disappointment in that the lighting was not good for producing detailed images.

As I continued to watch it dawned upon me to select a shorter focal length and capture the interaction between the turkeys and the crow along with the habitat surrounding them.

How fabulous to be able to see those wild turkeys! I don't see any around here, but my parents have a flock of them in their yard each morning. But crows... that's a different story! A tree right outside my bedroom window is a hangout for about six of them at 5:30AM each morning!

Well done. Once you mentioned the crow up top, the interaction between them really jumped out of the screen. Good selection of lenses.

Light might not be perfect but picture is great!

Neat shot. There is always a lookout.

Thanks for visiting my blog in Brookville, Ohio where it is cold this morning – 13 degree Fahrenheit = -10.5555556 degree Celsius.

I still think the shot lets us know it was a dreary day and I like the perspective of the crow standing watch.

great post. I have not season many wild turkeys. I here there are lots in Colorado and my neighbor said he saw one in his yard but they must hear me coming and all hide.
