Jackdaw

Corvus monedula

Habitat:

These guys were hanging out on the Alcazaba of Mérida, Spain.

Notes:

The Western Jackdaw was one of the many species originally described by Linnaeus in his 18th century work Systema Naturae. Owing to its supposed fondness for picking up coins, Linnaeus gave it the binomial name Corvus monedula, choosing the specific name mǒnēdŭla, which is derived from moneta, the Latin stem of the word "money" (Wikipedia)
