Yesterday around 10 am, I witnessed a common raven playing catch with some sort of trash in Tysons Corner. Amazing, it would drop the trash from where it was perched on the building's roof, pause for a moment, then free fall to secure the catch right before it hit the ground. I have seen this behavior before but not in such an urban setting. Common ravens are my favorite bird for a reason.
