3. I read they can actually soar in the sky like an eagle.

4. Yes! That's true.

We had a crow for years named Tim. Tim would come tap on my kitchen window for a treat with his beak. Cherry tomatoes were a favorite of his. He also liked dog food. If the back door was open, he would invite himself in, steal a kibble or two then take it out to the bird bath to soften it up before he ate it. When my kiddo was little, he'd eat his cereal or have a snack in his fort in the back yard. Tim would often join him in the hope he'd get whatever Owen was eating. My son would often ask for extra snack in case Tim dropped by so he wouldn't have to share. He was SO smart....the kiddo AND Tim.

5. Who doesn't love a raven? A PBS show said they create a culture, one generation's knowledge

Passed on and amplified by the next. I wonder if ravens aren't better than humans in creating progressive, beneficial culture. Ours seem to get stuck in the mud.

Ages ago when we lived in England, the Great Tit was named Birdbrain of Britain for its intelligence.

6. An excellent read -- "The Ravenmaster: My Life with the Ravens

at the Tower of London" by Christopher Skaife.

Fascinating !
