Then I saw a hawk sitting in a tree watching the ravens and their nest. Not a good sign. The hawk saw me and flew into the dense brush near the nest. That's when Mr. Raven took off after the hawk and chased him away. Oh I hope the hawk does not steal the baby ravens once they are born. It is a cruel world out there!!

The Ravens and Their Nest
At first I just heard their interesting voices which carried all the way up the newly created meadow to the edge of the woods where I was standing in Valley Forge. Their voices belonged to a pair of mating ravens. I could see them flying into and landing on the stone wall just above the old coyote den, so I took my big lens and walked down into the meadow and back up the hill and found the nest. Then Mr. Raven came flying back with a treat for Mrs. Raven.
