So Tuesday while at Vancouver's Stanley Park I was about halfway between the tennis courts where the herons are nesting and Lost Lagoon where most of the waterfowl are found. Here is this crow which appeared to be more than just anticipating a photo opportunity, it wanted to be in the photo. The bird is either an American Crow (Corvus brachyrhynchos), with a length of 17.5 inches, wingspan of 39 inches and weight of one pound (450 g), or it is a Northwestern Crow (Corvus caurinus) which has a length of 16 inches, a wingspan of 34 inches and a weight of 13 ounces (380 g). You be the judge. As for the photo opportunity, perhaps the bird was also mesmerized by its reflection in the camera lens. You decide. Enjoy this series of images.
