Common Raven at Kitt Creek

Keith J. and I birded at Kitt Creek lake and beaver impoundment. On the east side, next to Kitt Creek Rd., we saw and heard a C. raven flying toward us. The bird’s wedge-shaped tail was visible, and the bird was quite vocal. It flew from the direction of the Cicso building across the road and landed out of sight in the direction of the impoundment. We could hear it croaking from there. We did not see it again.
The water in the impoundment was way down and the beaver dam was still cut through. The swamp sparrows seemed to be less secretive than usual, affording us good long looks at them.
