This carrion crow was rummaging through the dead leaves that had collected on a ivy covered gate post. It selected individual leaves and tossed them away from the ivy. This particular image appealed to me because of the head on perspective eyes. You can really see how the eyes are positioned facing more forward than most birds.
Its fantastic to be able to get close encounters with wildlife to see the how they go about the business. This particular crow was searching for fallen berries.
