It’s Friday, and that means it’s time for After Before Friday.
A few days ago I heard these ravens in the tree right next to us. I love to watch them, listen to them, just observe them. And of course photograph them.
These were both full grown ravens, and they were obviously attached to each other. They were making soft clucking sounds, and rubbing their beaks together. In this edited photo, you can see the one raven had it’s beak in the mouth of the other one.
This is the photo before I did any edits.
I cropped it so I could see more of what the ravens were doing. Erased the branch, brightened the photo, and lightened the shadows. All this made the photo much easier to see.
Look closely at this photo. The raven is about turning his head upside down.
I watched the two interact for a while. They sat beside each other.
Then one dipped his head forward as if to say, “Hey give me a hand here.”
Right away the other one started grooming the back of his neck.
Let me get the front too.
Such smart and interesting birds.
