It did have some red on the wing that didn't show up in the photo, but I'm away from home, so it could be something else.
Is this a type of Crow? The call didn't sound quite right.
No idea what kind of bird this is. It was obviously sick, and just outside the St. Louis Zoo.
Saw lots of caterpillar clusters in leafy/branched areas of Forest Park.
