Camera Critters - Jack the Chimney Sweep

Jackdaws like magpies are attracted to shiny objects.  Perhaps this one liked this gate into my friends` garden in Herefordshire, England designed by Giusseppe Lund who designed the Queen Mothers Gate in Hyde Park.  He`s very handsome and you have to remind yourself he`s a member of the crow family.

Linking up with Camera Critters.

Apart from shiny things, they like dog food too. I see them around all the time. LOL!

Have to agree with everyone else Annabella. It's a great shot. The crow and gate just go so well together!
I admit I like crows, and love to sit and watch their antics. We have quite a large family of them in the area. :)
