The bird I was watching had a similar pose to the choughs on Peter Fuller's webpage

I would think a sunbathing crow would be more comfortable spreading out on a roof rather than posturing twenty metres up a tree.

Some of the behaviours described by members sound just like sun bathing to me. Normally the bird will have its beak slightly open, head tilted, and wings spread where the sunlight can fall directly upon the feathers. Often the bird appears dead, and will allow a person to approach. We've seem most
species do this.
