Queens Ravens Update 5-31-10

The Ravens have grown tremendously since the last time I saw them, and they all appear to be big enough to fledge. One did fledge while I was there. It saw one of its parents tearing away at something from a pine tree nearby and decided to chase it, probably thinking it was food (it was actually just a twig). It followed its parent back to the nest and continued begging for food the whole time. These three young Ravens make such a racket begging for food, they attracted the attention of many people in the neighborhood and passersbys. Underneath the tower where the nest is, a cat has given birth to 3 kittens, so there is a lot of new life in the area.
