> Hi Tweets,

>

> Just after completing this morning?s monthly bird census in Lincoln Park (West Seattle), I heard some crows and went to see what the fuss was about. There were perhaps 5-6 crows in a Western Redcedar, about 7? up, squawking occasionally and looking down. I was probably less than ten feet away, but still it took me a while to find the well-hidden raven below them (identity confirmed by call and a glimpse of his beak), on a branch and tight up against the tree. Our census group had encountered a raven family elsewhere in the park, but this raven was almost silent and on his own.

>

> I couldn?t figure out what he was doing at first. He seemed to be pretending to be a Pileated Woodpecker, hitting the bark with his beak then working it, occasionally peeling a strip. He continued doing this for perhaps ten minutes while I watched, trying to see if he might be collecting bark strips or twigs for a nest (even though it?s past raven nestbuilding time), or even eating bugs. I didn?t see any evidence of any of those.

>

> Then as I moved a little, my binoculars happened to point further downward ? which is when I saw the feathered edge of a Barred Owl huddled against the cedar trunk perhaps 18? below the raven. This situation continued for maybe another 5-10 minutes as I watched. At no point did the raven face the owl, thought the owl never took its eyes off the raven. Then something changed (I don?t think I triggered it ? wish I knew what did) and everyone flew off. I followed the owl for a while but the raven didn?t reappear.

>

> Has anyone else observed a ?bark attack? by a raven as an aggressive signal toward an owl or other potential predator? I poked around a bit in BNA and elsewhere and didn?t find mention of it, but haven?t yet spent a lot of time researching.

>

> I?ve posted a photo here<https://www.flickr.com/photos/trileigh/46918771415/in/dateposted-public/> to show how close the raven and owl were ? not a great photo because it was quite dark and branchy in there, but will give you the sense of their positions.
