Hi all


I was down at Branford Center Cemetery today and caught sight of several
American Crows hassling two larger birds.  Here's the challenge - my
pictures are just horrible due to my poor camera in need of professional
cleaning and the sun was coming right in my face.  Birds seen were much
larger than the Am. Crows - perhaps Buteo sized and all dark/black.  I think
they were Common Ravens.  The other thing I noticed was a deep almost
guttural clucking sound coming from these 'new birds'.


Pictures are here http://outdoors.webshots.com/album/560965568XuCwmV  under
unknown bird.  I hope the link works.


Other birds seen there: 5 American Crows, 1 Belted Kingfisher, 2 Herring
Gulls, and common birds - blue jays, grackles, robins, English Sparrows
