This female raven appeared as my wife and I were sitting down for a picnic in the Needles Region of Canyonlands National Park. She settled on the rock directly behind us and didn’t budge until we finished. She then followed our car for at least a 1/4 mile to the next overlook…
I really appreciated her willingness to pose for me! It is the closest I’ve been to a large wild bird.

    Great Raven. They are not easy birds to get well as they are so black. However, you have defined this well

  • Thank you very much!! :-)
