crows and towers, Przemysl and Cork

crows and towers, Przemysl and Cork crows and towers, Przemysl and Cork

two churches and their towers: the cathedral in Przemysl on the first photo and St. Nicholas's Church in Cork on the second.
and two crows, polish and irish (most probably, although a possibility of one crow with fondness for long distance travels and near-church resting locations cannot be entirely dismissed).
photos were taken in december and january (accordingly), hence their general gloominess.

Clearly both are the Irish crow, you only have to look at his hunched shoulders in Przemysl, he is obviously missing the Irish mist.

I am looking to a dictionary: gawron - rook, gawk, gaper

technically, yes, these are not crows. but I suppose in a common, daily language they would be called like that. could you tell us, Martin?

Ahem. Anything of the genus Corvus is a crow from the little blackbird to the mighty raven therefore these lads certainly qualify as crows but what type I do not know.

ha. thanks, Martin. these guys would be, most probably, rooks - while still being crows. sorted!
