I go out to check the sky when I hear crows mobbing. Usually they’re fussing about a Red-tail, but today it was a pair of Common Ravens circling around the cell phone tower. One perched for a while in a tree on the tower road, close to the trunk and out of sight, while the crows harried the other over the hill. The one in the tree then took off low over the house and a single crow — left behind as sentry, perhaps? — started the circus up again. We enjoyed a good half-hour of ‘Caw caw cawcaw’ and ‘Ock. Ock. Ock.’ back and forth.
Two Carolina Wrens took extensive dust baths in an unused tomato planter. It was hard to make out their actual color under all the dust, but the really bright white eyebrows and loud buzzing sold me on the ID.
