Proof that the Ravens are picking on ME!

28 Aug

or  . . . it’s all about ME!

Saw this NY Times article on Crows at Behind the Bins . . . . {click}

Given my history of Ravens flying off just as my camera focuses on them, I have long suspected that it’s a personal thing.  For some reason, the Ravens don’t like me.  I think it’s so they can laugh at me behind my back.  But maybe I’m a bit paranoid!

Walking Ravens

Okay, enough silliness.  I’m sure that these very smart birds aren’t deliberately hiding from my camera — after all, I have gotten some great shots.  However, I do think that the few times I’ve chased them away from the garbage cans at school can’t have helped my case.  🙂

    Oh, I read that article a couple of days ago, and I thought of you.
    I was very amused at the technique–using masks (Dick Cheney’s for the neutral mask!?!).
    I was convinced before, but the article drove the point home–crows are smart.

    Oooppss—RAVENS.
    How could I make that mistake?

    No worries, KGMom — the article *was* about Crows but did say that the researchers figure it all holds true for other members of the Corvid family so I immediately lept to Ravens.

    I’d seen that article and thought of you! Great, wasn’t it?

    Hope your first couple days of school have gone well. Enjoy the long weekend!

    When I read the article I thought of you too. You have quite the corvid rep. Bev
