Portrait of raven
I have a great fascination for ravens : Corvus corax !! They are known to be highly intelligent, they have a developed and advanced social life and social structure, they have a complex language with MANY different sounds & signals and they can grow very old (up to 70 years in captivity) and hence : be very experienced. Ravens are normally very shy and difficult to shoot. Most of my raven pics have been a "bonus" from long stays in winterly hides waiting for other birds and animals ... and they have often shortened my "endless waiting" with great entertainment !
Ravens are great flyers and control the flight situation with the white-tailed eagle as long as it is over the eagle. It would never fly under !

Ravens like to tease and bully white-tailed eagles, but they also know to keep their distance
