Enter the Ravens. Getting bigger. January 30, 2013

Ravens replace the magpies at the “food” pile.

While the magpies are often the ones to find the goodies, the ravens are no slouches and are good at spotting food from above.  And if they see a flock of magpies poring over something on the ground, then they know there’s food around.

We LOVE game cameras!  Every couple of days we sneak in, swap SD cards and eagerly load the pics onto the computer.  It’s like Christmas – you never know what you’re going to get :)!  So here’s a series of one of our game cameras.  First, it’s the little guys.  Magpies are almost always the first to find the goodies.
