Corvus frugilegus

Rook - Identified by the bare white patch around the beak and it's somewhat half feathered legs. The nest is built high in a tree close to other nests. The nest is bulky and made from twigs bound together with earth, lined with moss, leaves, grass, wool, and hair. Previous years' nests may be renovated and reused. I photographed these Rooks in Co. Leitrim and Sligo.
