We’ve all heard of the black raven, but rare sightings of a white version of the bird now have birding enthusiasts flocking to the island in hopes of spotting one.

Crow Rides Vulture

Previously we posted a similar photo of a Grackle attacking a vulture but contrary to common crow practice of battling it out with their larger Bird of Prey adversaries, this crow  appears to be capitalizing on a great opportunity - free tickets aboard the vulture express! This amazing moment was captured by Spanish photographer José Luis García Larred...
