Crows from Utrecht ... Kraaien van uit Utrecht

`
Just some images of the crows (kraaien) in Utrecht city center.
We find the crows entertaining, interesting and beautiful. We know most people don't like them, but we do.

By the Oudegracht in Utrecht.


In a park in Utrecht. Very freindly, this one!


View of the Oudegracht in Utrecht, The Netherlands.
Typically an overcast fall day. Photo taken last week.

Crow = Kraai
Crows = Kraaien
Black = Zwarte
Old Canal = Oudegracht

That's all!
:o)


Tot ziens,
Sacha & Judy

Hey Chuck!
I think they're beautiful birds...noisy, but beautiful. LOL

Kraai is sort of pronounced, phonetically, like
krah-eye (medium accent on the kraa & soft accent on the i (long i sound) ). Also sounds a bit like our word "cry", but there is that 'ah' sound in there too. Man, that's difficult to explain. LOL You'll have to come over for a visit!

Hugs to Edie!!!! :o)

I love crows too...they are stunningly beautiful! (Of course where I live we have the ravens too.) They crows are very entertaining...my fave is when they play in the air while flying...sure the can be annoying, noisy and are scavengers...but by golly they do it in style! ROFLOL!
