While out onlocation shooting family pictures I capture some Ravens. There must have been 30 or more in this group. A few flew close enough for me to capture them. Thank You Ravens.
1. Ravens are considered the most intelligent birds, displaying high learning ability and use of logic for solving problems.
2. Ravens put other animals to do tasks for them. Their beak cannot open tough skins of the carcasses, that’s why when they encounter a big corpse, they make calls that attract wolves and foxes to the site and the largecarnivores can break the carcass to expose the meat for the birds.
There was even a awesome Poem about ravens called:
The Raven, by Edgar Allen Poe
Once upon a midnight dreary, while I pondered weak and weary,
Over many a quaint and curious volume of forgotten lore,
While I nodded, nearly napping, suddenly there came a tapping,
As of some one gently rapping, rapping at my chamber door.
`’Tis some visitor,’ I muttered, `tapping at my chamber door –
Only this, and nothing more.’
