[Tweeters] Raven in West Seattle (specifically Westwood Area)?

On Tuesday (3/26) evening 6pm, I am pretty darn sure I heard (that caught my attention) and then saw (distinctive wedge-shaped tail) a common raven fly over the P-Patch on SW Barton & 34th Ave SW.
I was really surprised and excited! With the tweeters report of a Raven at the Montlake Fill I was thinking that this may have actually been a Raven!

Any thoughts or confirmations?

> Is anyone interested in some owl pellets. I picked up a fair number a couple weeks ago and didn't use them for what I was going to. One from a Great-Horned Owl even has a Northern Flicker feather imbedded in it. If anyone would like some or all of them contact me off list. I have 4-5 quart bags of them. If I need to get more I have a reliable place I can get them.
