      Ravens at Their Nest
      The Common Raven (Corvus 
      Corax) extended its breeding range into Connecticut in the late 1980's, 
      and it now can be found throughout the state. A breeding pair of ravens 
      has been observed closely at West Rock Ridge in Woodbridge since discovery 
      of the nest in 2003. We consider raven life history strategies including 
      pair bonding, mating, nest- building, egg-laying, hatching, foraging for 
      and caching of food, feeding and fledging of young, play behavior, defense 
      of territory, and how they get along with their neighboring nesting 
      Peregrine Falcons.
HAS meetings are free and open to the public.
