'And the crow once called the raven black'..



Whaaaat! Can't believe this angry crow is giving me attitude.. I'm not the one waking it up in the morning! Oh, maybe it's because it's fed up with me shouting buzz off you noisy crow when in fact apparently it is an Australian Raven. Impossible to tell the difference until I read that they travel in pairs (see below) and about the throat hackles :)


The Australian raven is one of the world's most intelligent creatures. I think they are a bit wicked also. I was surprised when we visited Pinnaroo Memorial Park over the weekend to see a pair of ravens swoop down and heckle the young kangaroo below, they pecked at it's tail until it hopped off, even then flying after it until mum kangaroo stepped in.. was extraordinary to observe. They do freak me out a little, especially when I walk out to my car in the morning and there is a line of ravens on the fence staring at me. I'm not scared of them, but I won't be watching Alfred Hitchcock's The Birds any time soon 😉Happy new week, take care and stay safe..

  3. He sure is, so much that he's actually kind of cute! Silly right, and how charming all the adorable kangaroos they are delightful.

  4. I am beginning to distinguish raven from crows but it’s a tough one. They are both smart birds.

  5. That's a fine portrait of the raven. All the crow family seem to be very intelligent, though I wonder about the sense in taking on a kangaroo!

  6. The portrait of the raven is stunning. I've never seen a field filled with kangeroos, very interesting to see. Great photos, Grace.
    Enjoy your day!

  10. Your first shot is quite a portrait. Super. They're quite big birds, aren't they? We have a lot of crows around here, fewer ravens.

  15. Aren't ravens bigger than crows? They are so, so smart. That kangaroo doesn't know what he got himself into!

  17. I'm a little miffed that they are pestering that young kangaroo. It's not like he can fly away after them. They certainly are dramatic looking birds.
