Default Feathered Friend? Nay ... an intelligent foe!

Common Raven (Corvus corax)

After successfully opening the pack on a snowmobile, this Raven removed two granola bars, stacked them, then flew away. (
Yellowstone - January 2005)

The beloved raven pictures. They are truly a treat. I remember them well from your Flickr album.

Lib, do you have more pictures from the Wild Bird Rescues Center?
