[CT Birds] Common Ravens - just an observation

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.
