Just now, out doing chores at our place in Mecklenburg, I watched  13 ravens 
drift south in a loose kettle. They were vocalizing, and doing some lazy 
acrobatics, but mostly just spiraling southward. We have a resident family 
group--and because we have a bakery on the property, with a delicious compost 
pile, we see a LOT of them--but I've never seen such a big group.

After a few minutes, 4 of them (I'm assuming "our" family) split from the rest 
and returned northward, 2 flying in a tight pair, and 2 following them. As soon 
as they left the group, the remaining 9 veered east, and began flying 
purposefully towards Ithaca.

Any ideas what that was all about?
