The Raven Air Force…

The Raven Air Force is watching you…

The ravens have a huge community & have developed a air force to repel invaders, at the cemetery. The hundred or so ducks at the pond are a benefit of this sophisticated advanced air force…

It works like this…

A hawk and or eagle and or both and or many come floating lazily around checking out the food source. When this happens: One raven comes out of the woods. If the hawks and eagles balk at leaving very easily, the raven makes a call. He has been bad mouthing the predators, but his tone changes…

When a eagle, no matter the size, ignores the warnings, out comes the Raven Air Force…

Like prop planes on nitro injection. There is no fear, just laying the law down. If you mess with us, you will pay. I would say that about twenty ravens are nesting at the cemetery and what I assume is males, come out ready to defend they little area of existence…

This morning I watched a huge eagle and a medium sized hawk swoop down at the ducks. Now a duck is about like a chicken. They make lots of noise, but….defending themselves is not a natural instinct it seems….the ravens are different. Ducks just want to be left alone and ravens have that, “Quoth the ravens evermore!”, thing going on…

Therefore, I stood and watched as the eagle decided that things on the pond might be interesting…

I bet money that that eagle will stay away now. Nothing like an air force of buzzing fighter planes to upset your hunting time…

One raven, the original first one went after the hawk alone and while he was pestering the hawk. The hawk was already getting out of Dodge…About ten more ravens dived bombed the eagle. It looked like sparrows attacking a raven to be in comparison…

The ravens actually struck the eagle and in less than a few seconds the eagle who was screaming bloody murder and almost was pushed into the water, decided to hightail it out of there…

My mind imagined an aircraft carrier trying to sneak up on someone and fighter planes buzzing death came to that someone or something’s help. The eagle even ended upside down trying to talon the ravens and these ravens, like persistent hornets, even did barrel rolls and such to avoid the talons. Feathers flew and so did the eagle…

It was over after the eagle crossed a boundary that the ravens knew about and I watched a dejected eagle fly to the river to lick its wounds. The ravens spent about a minute more tell the world that our air force will kick your butt and then went back home…

Then for ten minutes the cemetery’s pine trees were a group discussion of how brave I was, you were and how tough we are. I could imagine they were all around a campfire and talking about their escapades and who was the baddest raven around!

It is nice that our Tiny Russian Village has an air force…
