Hoping to see a Raven at Mt Rainier this week.   Not to be totally disappointed we did have several interactions with Camp Robbers.   These birds that are part of the corvid family and are called Clark’s Nutcrackers or Clark’s Crows.

While I was taking these two pictures I did hear the raven cronk sound up on the meadow above me.   I did some serious searching but never saw my big black birds.
