Occasionally I wandered in where I was not wanted and gave truthful answers.
Sometimes I even did it deliberately. A little disruption now can prevent disaster later.

NeoNotes — Ravens today

Um, how big are your cats?

Ravens in Northern AZ can get very big. I've seen them face down large cats and even coyotes.

ETA: More information here. And What's the difference between a crow and a raven?

I'd change the law so I could legally pick up feathers that ravens shed.

Ravens are amazing birds aren't they?

There's a lot of them in Northern Arizona, especially in the small towns and around the canyons. Visitors call them big crows but they are definitely ravens. It's not unusual to see feathers on the ground, although they disappear quickly. It is rare though, I hardly ever see it more than two or three times a year.

I tell you this merely as a point of information. I'm sure you're a law abiding citizen.

In the summer I sometimes share my breakfast with a local raven. The rest of the year (like today) I'll go outside around sunrise with a hot drink and something to nibble. That's usually for him.
NeoNotes are the selected comments that I made on other boards, in email, or in response to articles where I could not respond directly.
