Raven @ Yellowstone Ravens seem to hang around the parking areas at Yellowstone so it’s not to difficult to capture a few images of them. This image was captured some years ago; notice the camera is a D200. But, I like to post a Raven in October; seems fitting and proper. Halloween’s just around the corner.
The Raven seems like a fitting image to start October, Halloween month.
Amazing Raven Several folks have asked about the last Raven image posted a few weeks ago. Since posting that image, I have been reading a book that added to my minimal knowledge of Ravens. Ravens, as it turns out, are really quite amazing birds. They can fly over 20,000 feet. They adapt to a very wide variety of habits including the harsh climate in Yellowstone. They adapt to living around humans quite well. They’ll eat a wide variety of foods. They even befriend wolves while still sharing in the wolves bounty. Yes, amazing birds! If you want to find out more about ravens, Yellowstone, and wolves, Rick Lamplugh’s book: “In the Temple of Wolves” is nicely done, great read.
Raven Ravens tend to hang around the parking areas in Yellowstone. Ravens are among the smartest of all birds and have accompanied people around the Northern Hemisphere for centuries by following their wagons, sleds, sleighs, and cars looking for a quick meal.
