Common Ravens

Jerry Talkington called this morning to report two Common Ravens, observed close and at length, and photographed, near the Walmart distribution center, northeast of Stuebenville, and just southwest of Richmond. The ravens were found near the intersection of Route 43 and County Road 45. The from the intersection, the birds were found a quarter mile down County Road 45, feeding on a deer carcass just off the roadway. One of the ravens was seen on the roadside itself seemingly careless of vehicles rushing by.

  1. Awesome…I’ve loved these birds ever since I had my first encounter with them at Grandfather Mountain in North Carolina some thirty five years ago! I would never have imagined they’d be creeping this close to my home turf. Nice catch, Jerry, and thank you for sharing!
