Harriet, I find overcast days much easier to take this type of photo since the black feathers actually have a bit of a glare in direct sunlight. The same with turtles on a log, the glare goes away on overcast days or with a polarizing filter.

Tim, I think the adult crows have black eyes and the blue is just something that will got away when they get bigger.

neat photos
i kow i have had trouble getting detail in black feathers
but these have turned out great
overcast skies do work well for detail

i also get the feeling birds know when you are taking photos
most of the ones i try for must hear the lens cap coming off

the blue eyes i believe is due to a lack of pigment, which forms with age

Roy, crows are just doing their job, it isnt a choice thing
and herons dont mind raiding nest either
