Thanks for all the positive comments! I don't really know the bird's age, but I didn't want the title to sound like a bottle of whiskey.

There were a lot of crows that day -- this one "got in the way" as I tried to shoot the Golden Gate Bridge through a hole in the adjacent sculpture.

this is a very unique capture. I like it very much. Even though the frame is as interesting as it's relationship with the subject, my eye is always come back to the bird. 8
