Common Raven?


I thought this was a common raven...but when I looked at the second picture below I noticed the blue wing...hummmm...now I wonder if it is indeed a raven or not...he is definitely not listed in my Florida birds book.

Hey lady! I just spent some time looking on www.whatbird.com but I didn't find your bird.

Did the flash go off on your camera with these pics? Sometimes that plays tricks with colors.

Good thinking Sherlock, but I did not use flash on these pics. It is really odd, I looked in the whatbird site as well but when I matched the beak then the color was off...on some other pics the color was pretty close but the eyes were not yellow...ugh...The blue in the wings is not really a fluke because it shows on the other pics I took (different angles & slightly different lighing as well). Thanks so much for looking it up GJ! I will keep my eyes open and when I find out I will be sure to post it.

Hmmm, I'll keep an eye out for it too and will let you know if I run across it.

I owe you an email... been having computer "issues" for 2 days now. IE is constantly shutting down on me and I cannot figure out why! Maybe later tonight or tomorrow?? :-)
