Ravens, again

11 Dec

BCE Raven

Winter is one of the best times for watching Ravens at my school.  They start flirting about this time of year.  Ravens will sit in trees or on the roof tops and caw for hours, puffed up and showing off.  One Raven in particular, Peeping Tom, likes to come to my classroom windows and peer in.  As I walk around school during my prep period or at recesses, I laugh at the noises they make and their vain displays.  Ravens are such compelling birds.  Observing them so closely is such a complete joy.

    What a great looking raven. Very cool that you get to watch him and really observe behaviors.

    Fantastic Raven portrait Liza. I’m envious.

    You’re very lucky to be able to watch them whenever you want.
    Ohio just had its first Raven nest in like two hundred years, this past nesting season. I’m hoping to add them to my Life List in the Spring, in West Virginia….we would love to see you, if you could swing it. 🙂

    okay, I have several comments. Because, as usual, I’m late to the party.
    1. I LOVE an unkindness of ravens. They are my favorite black birds. I have one taxidermied, but I didn’t do it, promise.
    2. That carpet is stunning.
    3. My song birds used to to disappear from the feeder for about a month every year at this time. I finally decided it was because they were busy with berries or something but I don’t really know. I’ll read the comments to your post and maybe someone clever like Susan knows.
    4.Greg looks wonderful with his mum.
    5. Ruby is persistently cute.
    6. There’s lint all over your page.
