A few days ago, Akemi and I got a chance to witness a bunch of crows (maybe 10-15?) raising a real racket whilst harassing several ravens at our neighbor's place. We see a lot of crows here, and I love it, but ravens are really a special treat, as we don't see them nearly as often. So there they were, flying around in circles and cawing up a storm. One of the ravens landed in a tall spruce and just sat there awhile, occasionally calling out. Its call was quite different than the crows. While the crows kept on circling and cawing, I noticed none came very close to the raven, which just sat there for a few minutes looking mostly unperturbed, and then took off. But before it did, I managed to get some photos, though not very good ones. I wish they would come back more often...Love those beautiful ravens!
