I had a nice encounter with a family of ravens this morning. For many 
weeks this family has been around in the spruce tops across the road, 
driving our neighbor’s dog crazy. Today I saw one raven sitting on an 
extreme spruce tip, looking around so I started calling, croaking loudly 
like a young raven (slightly higher pitch)— first one and then two more 
ravens flew down to look at me and flew low round & around me , circling 
low again & again, just looking down at me.  Then they sat in our 
spruces & watched me while I spoke to them to come down.

Finally they flew off shaking their heads, not quite understanding what 
I was saying 😄.
