Feathers on Friday: Common Raven in my ‘hood

I see Crows quite often in my neighborhood but seeing a Raven is much more rare.  Today I heard one calling loudly and there’s no mistaking that gutteral sound… a Raven!

I found him on a neighboring rooftop and snapped a photo.  One more for my Yard List this year :)

Brrrrr! An Early Snow

Well, after the cold rainy days – we had a brief snow overnight… the weather here is always changing so it won’t last, but still it’s no picnic to wake up to.  I headed outside around ten to do the usual bird watching and hoping to see the Catbird again.

Let’s see who was out and about…
