The three birds captured in this photo are all different. The uppermost one, consistently black with a straight edged tail is an American Crow. The middle is a Common Raven, they are considerably larger than American Crows, although this difference can be hard to judge on its own if you don't look at size and shape. Look for the Common Raven's heftier bill, shaggy throat feathers, more slender, pointed wings, and longer, wedge-shaped tail. The lowest, largest bird is a raptor uncommon but not impossible to see in Berkshire County! The Golden Eagle is one of the largest, fastest, nimblest raptors in North America. Lustrous gold feathers gleam on the back of its head and neck; a powerful beak and talons advertise its hunting prowess.
