A  rainy day Rook

A rainy day Rook (Corvus frugileus)

Seeing as it has not stopped raining all day,thought this would be a suitable shot.I do quite like this shot,even though it was taken through a window,still adequate plumage detail and rain drops,better than many of my out door shots!!!.Quite fond of this pr of feeder raiders,who visit several times a day from a nearby rookery.

A superb detailed capture of this lovely Rook Christine. tfs.

Over the last few days I have had three or four Jackdaws, a Magpie, two Jays and a very large Crow visiting my garden several times a day looking for food.
WOW WOW WOW this should be in this month competition, as its the best one i have ever seen that goes with the theme of "birds and water".
Great detail and superb capture. I watched a Dipper yesterday that doesn't liked rain. The whole time during heavy rain it searched protection under a bridge but when the rain stopped it started diving for water insect again, funny isn't it.
Thats one cracking image Chrissie, top work...So much detail, you must have a very good window cleaner.
