    Ravens, harbingers of death or evil? Looks like you just missed focus ...

    Beautiful birds anyway. :)

    Thanks. Not sure if it was focus or my shaky hands.

    Too small for ravens ... Just crows ... But a group of them is a "murder"!

    Actually, there were 3 of them. The third was on the ground. They were larger than some I see at the park with more irridescent feathers, but not as large as some ravens I've seen around here. Probably a similar species I guess. I though it was rather Erie how they were hanging around. They didn't mind humans either.
