September 22 2018 ... From a windy afternoon in Central Saanich, I spent a remarkable 2 hours in a farm field photographing a group of 50 Ravens having a Fall Equinox celebration ... It was quite a spectacle!

The set of 3 images above shows a pair of Peregrine Falcons interacting with the Ravens ... I could not tell if it was playful or a "show of force" No one was injured as I watched what appeared very similar to the mock battles the Ravens were having with one another! (I was a long ways off when photographing these)
An afternoon I'll never forget ... A group of Ravens performed magic tricks for me and in the photo above had an interaction with a Peregrine Falcon!
This Raven carried that small piece of drifwood around like it was his prize possession. I watched him fly with it, drop it mid-air and catch it and also saw him using it as a shovel to dig for food in the sand!
