I usually hear them before I see them. Brooklyn’s Common Ravens regularly fly across the bow, the view from here down to the coast of Upper New York Bay. They are generally quite vocal, which helps to distinguish them from the crows from afar. In this case, the somewhat swine-like krongking was right overhead. The bird swirled down from above my apartment building and landed in the Kestrel Tree across the street for just a moment.This has happened twice in the last month. But mostly, they are in the distance, passing across Green-Wood, gruntling.

    I’m enjoying reading Ravens in Winter.
