An American Crow in Seattle

Maybe this photo resolves the American Crow/Northwestern Crow conundrum, once and for all:

I suspect that any Pledge of Allegiance here is to Corvid Nation.

Check out my post Crows on Cairns for a short discussion about what really constitutes “American” or “Northwestern” when it comes to corvids.

And, finally … an interesting take on the Gershwin inspiration for this post title:

      You know how misguided I am in not shying away from some of those characterizations myself. I was originally going to call this photo, “I pledge allegiance to … Corvid Nation” which I instead incorporated in the text. Similar wavelength.
