Two birds flying in formation, Ottawa, Canada


Recommended Posts

Hi,

   What are these guys?  They were flying in formation with synchronized wing beats today in Ottawa, Canada.  Unfortunately, I couldn't get any shots except from directly underneath, but they were swooping around quite quickly and, if I had to guess, I would have said ravens.  However, as you can see, they have white marks on their faces (this was obvious in real life as well as in the pictures).  I have never seen ravens with white markings before.  Could it be a trick of the light?  It didn't seem to disappear as the angle of changed.  What are these guys?

   Thanks,

Blue Jays, I think. They can look quite dark, and the bill is too small for raven.

I agree. You can see the dark bib. 
Great example on how they aren’t actually Blue, they just look it!
