Driving along yesterday- two large black birds in the snowbank beside the road. Crows or ravens? One flew away quickly, but the other one pretty much ignored me as I slowed down and stopped to take some pictures.
We have both crows and ravens here, and I was a bit north of where I live, so that and the size suggested "raven." The bird kept flipping its beak through the snow. I didn't get a shot that really shows that, and I'm not sure what it was after.
But it did let me catch a couple of nice profile shots that show the roman nose of the raven, in case I wanted a little more verification.
I guess it finally noticed me, because it flew to a tree. Just for extra certainty, it cawed for me. Not the clear caw of the crow, but the harsh, crow-with-a-very-sore-throat caw of the raven.
Then it had had enough of me. Bye, bye, black bird.
