Common Raven - Ravn - Corvus corax
Korp - Korppi - Raaf - Kolkrabe - Grand Corbeau - Cuervo Común

Raven are one of the typical birds of Øygarden. Always up to something these birds are well worth watching as they often lead one to birds of prey or other interesting finds. I could take plenty of good Raven shots if I put the time and focus in - they regularly fly past the seawatching lookout at Skogsøy but I am almost always intent on other things....

The parents are shouting at them as I approached and they did not fly off - a day or two later when the above photo was taken they were more wary - but I had a functioning telephoto lens again so it didn't matter......

This bird is not calling, but panting to keep cool in the the extreme heat
