Today’s #CrowOrNo photo was the recent source of contention for an online birding group. Will #CrowOrNo players likewise be split, or form a clear consensus? I guess we will find out! Answer: This kind of photo is my favorite kind of #CrowOrNo challenge because it’s inexplicably hard. You have a lot of info and yet you’re just not ~quite~ sure. I second guessed myself too at first. But after some hemming and cawing I landed on #Crow ! How do I know? The proportion of the bill, the proportion of the nasal feathers on the bill and the texture of the throat feathers. Even though this bill does look heavy, when you look at an actual raven you can see just how much longer a raven’s bill is. You can also see that the nasal feathers on a raven cover more of the bill. So no doubt this game was tough but I think it’s a great example of how much tougher it can get when you start overthinking it, something that’s easy to do. So sometimes you gotta trust your first instincts and hope for the best. And then keep learning! So thanks for playing everyone! I hope you had fun and will join me next week for another round of #CrowOrNo ! 📸 @photothatmatt#crow#raven#corvid#scicomm#scicommgame#birdID#birding#ilovecroes#IDchallenge
El cielo sigue nublado
Los cuervos danzan al son del viento
Y la luna con su brillo, sigue siendo opacada por la tenue sombra de las nubes
Pero, ¿en qué constelación sigues tu?
¿En qué río podré escuchar el rumor de tu voz llevarse en sus aguas mis ansias de ti?
¿Cómo podré hallar el sueño sin su presencia distante y lejana?
¿Cómo podré hallar inspiración con tanta ausencia?
Pues mis noches se han desvelado aguardando su encuentro
Las notas siguen sin tu voz
Y mis poemas crecen de métrica, esperando la guía de su superlativa percepción del arte.
El cielo parece despejarse
Pero la luna
Final for Wheel Throwing Class. Constructed off of wheel throwing pieces such as a Bottle, Plate, S Curves, Coil, and Line Design. 💀 I love Skulls. Obviously if you've seen my other work and reason behind it is more than just "Wow its cool" but more of our mortality. We probably don't think much of it, but its always there with us. From the very beginning of life and up to the end. Face recognition is embedded within us to notice it whether it be in inanimate objects or something of that nature. (Pareidolia)
The structure of skulls is also something that fascinates me due to it structure.
Regardless, I wish to find something much more of a creative idea in where I can find surrealism in skulls or something similar to a landscape. I know it's there but I'll have to keep on searching to find out what my mind is eager to create and discover. #Ceramics#ceramicistsofinstagram#ceramicart#ceramicartist#wheelthrownpottery#wheelthrowing#Drawing#skull#Crow#claysculpture#Skeleton#Art#Artwork#Artist#cerritoscollegeceramics#CerritosCollege

This fellow needs some treasures. So far he has a pocket watch, a pendant and some pop beads. What other goodies should he have in his stash of precious items?

Edgar Allan Crow: found just over a week ago by one of our staff, on the ground beside his deceased sibling. He’s spending days at the garden centre this week because she has to feed him every 2 hrs. Little guy is doing well despite being cold and starved. #crow

Here's a re-draw from like 2years ago~
"Bird king!" the first out of the 7 stars
Friedrich has hurt himself again 😐😥😟 Just two days ago I thought how nicely he recovered from this winter’s injury, though I could tell that he was favoring his left leg. Now that one is hurt! Ugh. I wonder if he has some hip issues, or something chronic. Today I saw him balancing with his left wing and his tail. The wings are okay, he’s flying. But he doesn’t look happy. So today ‘front crow’ was parading around the yard, and was tolerated by both Friedrich and Emma 😰 #crow#crowfriends#injured#corvid#corvidsofinstagram#krähe#urbanwildlife#naturedrama
