It's Not the Bluebird of Happiness

On our regular walk, I always see a few of these pretty blue birds sitting in the palm trees, ready to swoop down and feast on any garbage lying about.


They look a bit like a crow but with the blue coloring, are obviously something else. It turns out that they are House Crows. Suspected of stowing away from India on ships headed through the Suez Canal, they are pretty common here now. More pictures by other folks, here.
