CHOUGH IN WEST CORNWALL

We caught up with a group of Chough in West Cornwall yesterday.
At one point there were 12 together and surprisingly some had no rings. 
Maybe they originally came from a nest that no-one had located.
Love the way they goose-step instead of hopping & running like most other Crows.

MOSTLY IN HAVANA WHICH IS A BEAUTIFUL CITY AND MADE ALL 
THE MORE SO WHEN EVERY OTHER CAR LOOKS LIKE THESE.

This is the nearest I'll get to owning one of these.
