CommentCame across a small flock of Choughs with juveniles in the Botanic Gardens and observed for a while before shooting. Quite tricky as they hop around feeding and rarely stay still foe more than a few seconds. Several were feeding juveniles or teaching them to hunt for their pwn feed. The Juveniles had little white pin feathers in the top of their heads as shown here. While the youngster had its back turned I chose to publish this shot for the interaction between the adult and juvenile and the clean shot of the adult for ID purposes. I also enjoyed the leading line provided by the adult's tail feathers.
