Cold Colours?

Last photograph from todays' trip to Killingworth Lake; this jackdaw was patrolling the grass round the edge of the car park.

As with the recent photograph of the starling, the use of fill flash has assisted with the detail of the jackdaws' plumage.
It's not just a black corvid, check out the blue and purple gloss in the greater coverts, alula and secondaries. Very nice!
