The boss and I were standing in the barnyard yesterday...I was holding the heifers away from the open gate and he was getting on the skid steer to bring up bales...when we heard a distinct and unusual, at least in this area, sound.
"What's that!" quoth he.
"A raven," said I.
And pointed to it flying by.
First one in several years, probably only the third occurrence I've seen on the farm. Not particularly welcome birds in terms of livestock harassment, but pretty cool for my bird counts.
