a new friend...

This raven has been picking through my trash every day for over a week.  I keep finding bits and pieces on the ground around my trash cans.  Putting out food every morning now to buddy up to him.  Video coming soon.  103,108,80,0,B

Judy...the raven normally won't bother chickens or rabbits. Particularly if John is supplementing his diet.

The Raven

Margery Bills said...

In Alaska a Raven would swoop around me when I was walking and then then land beside me on the high snow bank and hop along beside me and we would just talk and talk.

But one evening there was a crowd in the yard next to my place. They were around an injured Raven. One man took the Raven home and was going to call Wild Life Rescue the next day. That made me sad when I looked at the Raven and he looked at me. We did not know what happened to him. (One little girl always rode her bike there with her protective Dalmatian dog. ???)
