Ho hum, 'another sighting of Common Raven in Bethany.
But this morning, (at the old Bethany Airport on Rte 63) was different. I had 8 ravens; including 6 in the woods near the recycling center, so close overhead in the Oaks, that I could hear their ponderous wingbeats. They had their summertime Blackfoot Indian war-whoop calls, their high-pitched repetitive "Chimpanzee calls", and other calls that only a Bernd Heinrich (or perhaps a Steve Broker) could translate.
Other highlights at the Bethany Airport this past week, include 1 Am Pipit and 1 Eastern Meadowlark.
