Like other birds, Ravens collect sticks and string and such for their nests. They also like to play games with objects; picking up and dropping sticks or passing a piece of string back & forth with a playmate mid-flight, for instance.
I was driving to town one Tuesday, in a bit of a funk. It was a gray, uninspiring kind of mid-winter day. A raven came swooping alongside my car, bearing a lavish sprig of Rowanberries (aka Mountain Ash Berries). I looked over at him and he turned to look at me. That crescent of red made it look as if he had a big, goofy smile on his face. Clowning around, so to speak, making me laugh out loud. Thanks, buddy, I needed that.
