Hiking Pima Canyon And Becoming Intrigued With A Flock Of Ravens   Leave a comment

The first gallery of photos was taken on the SCVN Friday hike in Pima Canyon (November 6, 2015). During the hike we notice a flock of ravens, not a common sight since raven tend to be solitary or in pairs. So, later in the day I did a little research on ravens. The best answer I could find for why ravens might flock together was that of young migrating ravens.

Young Ravens may form juvenile flocks or “gangs”, which helps them when they are foraging for food.  They actually play together, flying and catching objects in the air.  They will make their own toys for entertainment, play with wolves or dogs in a game of chase, and even slide down snow hills — interesting!

Like many people, I’m fascinated by these very intelligent birds and take photos of them at every opportunity. Here are a few.
