Franconia Raven

I hike the Franconia Ridge in the White Mountains the other day. Two ravens were mingling with the other hikers atop Little Haystack Mountain looking for dropped food or handouts—no doubt a pretty reliable source of food for the birds. Ravens are very intelligent birds (like all corvids including crows and jays). I got the impression that these two birds hung out on the summits a lot as they were quite used to people (not necessarily a good thing…) They let me get within about 3′ of them!

Daylilies are in bloom now and the bank of naturalized blossoms along East Street are putting on a good show!
