Two little birds, on my doorstep
Western scrub jay
I saw them playing/ bathing in the snow here near a little seep with open water. No photos of the crows but here are their tracks. Hand for scale as I had no pennies. I have a big hand. And no pennies.
This telephoto shot was across an expansive lawn of this ancient Roman ruin site of Herod's palace.

The common English names used are corvids (more technically) or the crow family (more informally), and there are over 120 species. The genus Corvus, including the jackdaws, crows and ravens, makes up over a third of the entire family.
