10/14 The “Caw” of the Wild
ravens that occasionally swoop down onto the campground to scavenge some extra snacks. Right now, a raven is roosted at the top of the light post and is scoping out his territory.
When we first arrived, and I saw two of the big puffed up birds for the first time, I was terrified. I immediately thought “Hitchcock!!!!” and high-tailed it the other way. (There were two ravens having some sort of late dinner meeting on top of a campground shelter--I’m pretty sure I saw two dirty martinis and some deals go down—it looked pretty serious). Anyway, the ravens are quite a presence in this whole region. Maybe some of our bird watching family members can add more to this post.
