Got My Crow Eye on You

I had heard about an albino crow at Lincoln Park.  This week I went there on a quest to see this mystical bird myself and perhaps get a photo.   This special bird did not show itself but I did find a baby crow with its parent at the beach.   This little guy had a raw looking eye either from molting or some sort of bad occurence.  When I took his photo he gave me the Crow Eye.

Then around the corner from Coleman pool (a rare saltwater swimming pool) there was an older male crow on the fence.  He allowed me to take his photo but not without giving me the Crow Eye too.  Check out how his feathers are brownish and degraded.  He is in full molt.   This year all the crows seem to be having a serious molt.  I blame that on the hot weather, which must have put a lot of wear and tear on their feathers.
