When outside, be sure to look everywhere for life, including up.
This unusual congregation of Common Ravens was a special moment for us. Unlike American Crows, ravens are not a corvid that normally congregates in large social groups. This overhead party was quite unusual. Usually, ravens are seen in groups of 2s to 5s. The GNG happens to have a large group of 7 ravens that patrol the area. But the well over 100 birds in this brief playdate was something never seen before by us! This whole gathering lasted less than 10 minutes; they came from every direction, played, socialized, vocalized – and then disappeared as fast as they arrived.
Be ready for nature’s surprises – something spectacular will play-out before you eyes when you least expect it!
