These two ravens are having quite a conversation! What do you think they’re talking about?

Head to head ravens.

This would be a GREAT name for a bar with a raven theme!

Photographer Dave Reed of southeastern Minnesota says, “While loading our cameras and gear into the Jeep for another weekend adventure, I noticed a ruckus and lots of movement across the road in the trees. A family of crows has taken up residence in one of those trees, and appear to either have eggs or young in the nest there. A marauding squirrel had gotten too close to the nest, it appears. Whether on purpose, squirrels sometimes will dine on eggs or chicks, or just by accident, the squirrel chose the wrong tree and the wrong time to be there. Crows often will have mom and pop tending the nest and young, and sometimes a last years sibling or relative will help out as well. This is the case with this nest. There are three very watchful crows keeping an eye on things around here.

“I was able to grab up my camera very quickly but had to depend on ‘yesterdays’ settings, as there was no time to make adjustments. I managed to get a series of shots of the crows chasing the squirrel out of the tree, across the road and straight to me. I had to yell ‘Hey’ as it appeared the squirrel might run right up my leg. After I hollered, the crow went one direction and then the squirrel the other, splitting company directly in front of me. I was so happy the camera settings were what was needed and I got the shot I had hoped for.”
