Very impressive! You are a good shot. I have a Diana 34 Breakbarrel air rifle and I can not shoot it very well.
Thanks sir, in fact diana 54 is the best. You may also like this video:

Nice shot, well done. Was that a Nebelkraehe, I think Hooded Crow in English. Saw tons of them in Bosnia and also some in Germany.
Thanks , in Egypt we can see all kinds of crows.

I used to shoot crows but had an "experience" while deer þbhunting in Arizona. I watched a crow fly up a valley, squawking madly. When he got to the highest end, he (she?) turned around and flew back, into the slight wind. When he got to the other end (where I was standing, watching) he pulled up abruptly, folded one wing against his body and did what we aerobatic pilots call an "aileron roll." I was stunned, having never seen this type of behavior with any bird. He flew up and down the valley a half a dozen times, and on each pass he did the roll almost directly over my head, squawking madly. I, of course, did not have a camera with me. It's the first time I've ever seen any bird actually enjoying the fact that they can fly! Since that time I have just not been able to bring myself to shoot them since I too, enjoy flying and aerobatics. I understand why others don't want them around but I just can't bring myself to kill them. I guess I'm just an old softie!
Cheers,

I think you sympathized with the crow, and you felt that he was happy with his life like humans, I passed a similar situation with a dove, and I have documented the situation in this video :

Nice shooting. Makes me embarrassed when I miss the close shots but my pellet rifle isn’t anywhere near as good.
Let’s just not talk about my shooting......
Pellet rifle just needs some experience to become wonderful and effective in hunting. Why do not you want to talk about your shooting?
