Adrienne Smith just published a video of a huge flock of Common Ravens near Rimrock Springs on Hwy 26. I printed a video capture and marked each bird with a red dot while counting. I ended with 235 birds in the capture. There were at least 20 more outside the frame of this picture so 250 is a conservative estimate. I looked back through my records. The largest flock I can find recorded in Central Oregon is 200. I suspect others have seen flocks close to 250 but not often. This is quite a find.
