That is lovely - thank you so much, beans!

I recently attended a talk about birds where a raven was one of the guest ambassadors - and was amazed how big they are when being held by a person.

Thank you for helping me get to know a bit more about them.

After affection training a Raven fledgling at Lindsay Wildlife Museum hospital (he had poor eyesight and could not be released back into the wild), I became fascinated with Ravens. They are very smart, they remember, and they love to play, and play tricks! He is a fine education ambassador at Cascades Raptor Center in Eugene, Oregon, and definitely recognizes me when I visit!

Wow, beans - that is wonderful! I know the person giving the talk while the raven was being displayed said that it got bored quickly, so they had to move rapidly while displaying it, so it would have new things to see. love
