Ravens Dancing in the Wind

We took another trip up Skyline Drive at the Davis Mountains State Park today to look for Montezuma Quail. No sign of quail, but we did enjoy watching a dozen Common Ravens playing in the stiff wind. The ravens hovered in the up-drafts and shot past us at high speed. We noticed several of them carrying twigs or other material in their beaks and were playing games with them. It reminded me of the dolphins we have seen playing keep-away with bits of flotsam.
