Cromwell Birds Today

         Cromwell birds that I've seen today in a 2 hour spell
         and a big applause for the members who were hard
         at work near the cabin today.

         Bullfinch, Chaffinch,
         Blue, Coal, Great and Long Tailed Tits,
         Sparrowhawk fly through,
         2 Goldcrest by the ponds,
         1 Pied Wagtail between canal and river near bridge,
         1 Jay in same place,
         6 Comorant on ski lake and lots of Gulls,
         1 Goosander on river near the weir,
         2 Dunnock, 2 Blackbirds, 2 Wren,
         what looked like a Raven but not 100%,
         Crows and Magpies.

                                          Claremount  Ravens for Steve

Ha Ha - Gold crest stay still! That would be nice!
I have had the odd Raven routing around on top of North Loop, & do appreciate the Not Sure! Unless they honk or are with Crows it can be difficult without a really good view.

Steve Blacksmith said...

You hear it as a honk, Barry. I hear at as a "Prruk!". It's only the older ones that develope the deep honk, but when you've got your ear in, you can pick out the younger ones. There was a brilliant pic of one on the Calderbirds Blog the other day; perfectly showing the proportions and diamond tail shape. Hills around Todmorden usually provide calling Ravens.
I've never heard or seen one east of Mytholmroyd, you are privileged,Barry. Calls/songs can be clicked on on the RSPB Bird Identification pages.
