You captured the character of this Jackdaw wonderfully, Tom. It is a bird that is not afraid of anything and always will steal "the cheese from your sandwich" if you don't pay attention...
Tom Wilson: Thanks, Astrid - yes, they are very intelligent birds.

It looks important Tom.
Tom Wilson: Putting on the style smile
They re very handsome birds tom
Tom Wilson: They are indeed - however, quite a nuisance when they build their nests in your chimney as they did in my childhood home smile

Now I know what a jackdaw looks like. Seen them aplenty, but thought of them as blue-eyed crows.
Tom Wilson: Well, they are one of the crow family smile
We do not have them. Very attractive colour.
Tom Wilson: They aren't normally resident in N. America, but, according to Wikipedia: "A small number of western jackdaws reached the north-east of North America in the 1980s and have been found from Atlantic Canada to Pennsylvania."
