The Ubiquitous Crow!

One of the most common and to some definitely the most annoying bird to be found throughout Tiruvannamalai District is the ubiquitous crow. Of which the most usual varieties seen are the house crow and the jungle crow. The crow has lately been in the headlines as its being proclaimed, in some scientific circles, to be even more intelligent than the ape.

Its true isn't it - the crosser we get the happier they seem! I've noticed how clever they are at getting under our skin. Good spotting Eileen.
