Turn your sound up to hear it. It is also raining, so there's some background noise.
This raven is making the weirdest sounds that I've ever heard one make. We have alot of ravens here in Bethel. They are the town terrorists...they get in the trash and spread it everywhere. They are dirty scavengers. They are also huge. I bet this one is the size of a small dog. There is a Yupik legend that describes the raven as being the messenger of death. It says that if a raven follows you and talks to you, that you are going to die soon. Or something like that.
I'm a high school science teacher currently living my dream of teaching out in bush Alaska. I'm always up for new adventures and like to travel anywhere and everywhere. This blog is a way to keep in touch with friends and family, journal about life, and share my experiences with the world.
