Non-raptor Observations: The loudest Carolina Wren I've ever heard cut through the white noise of the wind this morning yelling from her perch behind the S lookout. Watched 3 ravens clucking and gliding in the bowl. As they flew, they would suddenly tuck their wings, roll onto their backs, cluck some more, and flip right-side-up and keep going. What fun! 7 pine siskins.
