I have no idea what kind of bird this is. On first glance, I thought it was a raven of some sort. From one angle it was entirely black, but from some angles, an iridescent blue was wonderfully evident. I couldn’t help but stalk her for a bit. She was patient, but given the number of shots that were slightly blurry, I think I need some work on my bird photography skills.
