I wonder how many of you have Ravens as neighborhood friends . . .
For more skyward birds, visit Sky Watch Friday.
no, but we do have carrion crows and jackdaws…
Okay! Gotta say that those names totally rock compared to “Common Raven.”
We have lots of crows and, for the first time this summer, we had a family of baby crows in the yard. It was fun watching their antics.
One of your ravens looks like it has on a tutu!
I’d love to see babies. The Ravens put their nests so high in our redwoods that I can’t ever see them. We’ve camped near nests and I had a nest near my yard this summer . . . they are LOUD!
What a nice shot– I love the silhouettes! We don’t have ravens, but we do have crows… and they’ve all been far too crafty to let me ever get a good picture of them! Very pretty.
It’s a family joke that when the ravens see my camera lens they flee!
I do! I do!
You know I was thinking of you when I asked the question!
A few – but mostly crows…
No ravens in Michigan, we have crows and grackles. In California (northern coast) we have lots of very big ravens. Alarming creatures, large and smart. Interesting to watch – when they will let you.
Love the name of your blog -“birding by happenstance”!
Thanks, Christine. I’m in Northern (well, Central) California myself! I’m blessed to have them in my neighborhood and at the school where I teach. We get to watch them a LOT there. They find cleaning up after the kids to be well worth the potential risk
I wish we had ravens, but I’m enjoying the crows we do have.
They have quite an air of ownership, don’t they?
They are mighty entitled!
No ravens around here that I know of. I adore crows, though. What a great picture!
Thanks, Miz S. Crows are great too but I’m a big fan of the Raven!
We are just starting to get our crows back. I wish we had ravens. I miss rooks and jackdaws. :o|
