The Ravens

Two weeks ago, the word went out that a family of five Common Ravens had been spotted near Bush Terminal Park here in Brooklyn. It was nearly a week before I personally saw any bill or feather of them, and then only from afar. These two were so larky I assumed they were two of the three youngsters of the year. They were being harried by a trio of crows but didn’t seem too put out by it.

The Brooklyn Ravens story began on New Year’s Day, 2015. Here are some highlights: The first sighting. And part two of the same. That year I also spotted them gathering nest material.

In 2016, I didn’t see them gathering nest material, but I saw the result.

Here’s a report from June of 2017.

Earlier this year, I again came across some stick-gathering. But this daylight egg raid was certainly the sight of the year, so far.
