In Southeast Alaska, large ravens are everywhere. In Sitka, they drop shellfish onto the city tennis courts to crack the shells. Quite unpleasant, when your tennis balls smell like a very low tide from expired mussels. I don't know anyone who isn't fascinated by their intelligence. They have a wonderful call, too. And for all of their urbanization, I've yet to see a raven nest. Secretive.
