Silent Raven

Common Raven, Beech Hill Preserve, Rockport, Maine, 09 January 2018.

Common Raven.

A little overnight snow made the trail soft and quiet. The temperature had nearly reached freezing under a bright, angled sun. Jack and I met a pair of young women coming down the trail but were otherwise alone. Most birds on today’s list I heard—except for a low-flying raven, which was as silent as a raven can be.
