The crow is a bold bird that has adapted very well to city conditions. Its forehead, crown, throat and upper breast are glossy black. Neck region is ashy in colour. The wings, tail and legs are black. The crow spent a long time ridding the cow of parasites...and getting itself breakfast in the process. The cow kept holding its head at an angle to facilitate the grooming. I liked the way the crow is gripping the horns. This is called Cleaning symbiosis. One species (the cleaner) removes and eats parasites etc. of the other (the client). Here the crow is the cleaner and the cow is the very patient and appreciative client.
