Connecticut Ravens have really come a long way since the late 1980s, when HAS Field Trippers might stumble upon a low nest in Boston Hollow. Or, NW CT Big-Dayers would wait patiently on John McNeely's picnic table, simultaneously enjoying a visit to Veedor the Andean Condor's enclosure, and hoping for a Raven's croak on the Mountain above...

It seems to me that at the moment there is a very sharp uptick in the CT
population of Ravens. I am out and about in the woods pretty much all over
the state, and it is a very rare day when I don't see, or at least hear, one
or more. I've spent some time this last week in the Killingworth area, and
I can honestly say I've seen and heard as many Ravens as Crows there. And
anywhere in the state that there is a ridgeline or good sized hill the
sight and sound of a Raven is to be expected. On this list, sightings of Ravens
are an every-day occurence.
I just wonder if I'm alone or if others have noticed this.
