Bird ID help PLEASE + Misc Birds - BIGMA

I was sitting down by the river listening for Woody (the woodpecker from last year). This character showed up. The sun was bouncing off some snow and ice onto him. I don't know what he or she is but I thought he or she was kind of pretty.



A crow showed up to see what I was and what I was doing.



This Robin showed up. I don't have any idea how he landed in all the thick branches.




YES!!!! I found WOODY and am working on his photos. He is back to the same group of trees that he was at last year. They must be his Summer home.

Looks like what I would call a Starling in the UK.

Yes, this time I won't fool myself. It's a starling all right. But #2 looks like a raven rather than a crow to me. What do the experts say?

Whatever birds, the photos are as usual first class. Would be dissapointed for anything less from you, Roger:bye:.

Thanks Kjell for the information. Your right about the CROW - RAVIN. I am batting 100% when it comes to choosing wrong about it being a crow or a ravin. I think from now on I will call it a large bird that is black.

Kjell thank you for taking the time to look and answer.

The first one is a Starling here also, and it looks like the crow is actually a Raven.

Nice Shots!

Well, since I can't tell the difference between a crow and a raven, whatever you call it is fine by me. And since all the black birds I ever take look like black blobs, or (if I'm lucky) like silhouettes, I loveall the detail you captured in his feathers.
