Ravens in West Yellowstone and Yellowstone National Park say, “Wolves, Grizzlies, and McDonalds” They hang out with wolves and grizzlies for leftovers. I guess they hang out at McDonalds for the same reason.

Advice for elk hunters this week in the paper said don’t gut your elk near ravens as grizzly bears are likely nearby. Ravens may also lead wolf packs to prey.

They are great models and featured in folklore around the world as a wise trickster.

Eight layers and original raven. . . .
Why would I leave a McDonalds garbage can in the image??

Wildlife, people, dogs, ranches, mountains, cameras.

    You know raven language too? ha ha,
    I remember my black cat named Davinci caught Raven.
    I doubt he was a good artist or scientist but good hunter.

  • If you listen, you can always understand ravens. They say, “MINE” and “GO AWAY.”
