Crow with Fish.

From Ice Swimmer: This crow was sitting in spruce tree in an island, eating a small fish (probably a perch, caught by somebody fishing on the sea ice). The crow is there in the first picture, but the branches obscure it. The bird was worried that I might take its seafood meal and flew to another tree (a deciduous one). Click for full size!

    MINE. Mine mine mine mine mine.

    It’s amazing how he can spread his tail feathers in an almost perfect half circle. That looks pretty cool.

    Ah, the tail thing is cool. Not only are crows smart, but they also have a few aerodynamic tricks up their proverbial sleeves.

    Why didn’t I think of that pun.

    The island is Läntinen Pukkisaari (could be translated to “western buck island”), between Seurasaari and mainland, in Helsinki.

    There’s also a smaller island called Variskari (crow skerry), to the west of Seurasaari. I wonder if one could find crows there.
