Crow at the Jama Masjid, Old Delhi

You have been seen
At the Jama Masjid in Old Delhi, an old crow sat above the bustle of humanity. It seemed so calm, so serene, as if it had seen everything.

Well, it probably had! That beak has done a lot of hard investigation.
If parrots can talk why don't crows? It always looks as if they should speak at any moment.

Got my eye on you, child.

P.E.A., crows don't talk because they're wise enough to know not to.

Zhoen, that's it. Definitely.

Looks very different than our N. American crows, but I love it all the same;) Wow.

Barbara, this is a house crow. They're widespread throughout Asia. If you like crows (and who wouldn't ;^)), check out Mike's review of Crow Planet by Lyanda Lynn Haupt.
