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 😄. Nari Mistry, Ellis Hollow Rd -- _______________________ *Nari B.
