I also was happy and surprised to observe 4 Ravens fly across my
neighborhood in N. Ballard from my back deck in September of last year. I
recall also having one land on the tree across the street from my front
door the year prior, it was quite a spectacle since I was roused by the god
awful racket of about 10 Crows losing their minds and diving on the tree.
They were very displeased with their larger Corvid relative coming around.

Wasn't aware they had been breeding in the area, but it's definitely
interesting to see this expansion around Seattle.
