A Raven at Ocean Beach, SF

When reporting such things as murders and other felonies as well as reports of profound, frightening events, the Media loves to use the sounds of Crows and Ravens to magnify emotions of fear, terror, darkness, and evil.

We City Birds find this misrepresentation of these two friendly birds most humorous.  The Raven is as gentle as a black house cat.  And the Crow is a comedian.  But both birds are always up to the challenge of ganging up on hawks and other birds greater in size than they are.
