We’ve been seeing Ravens in the Seward Park forest fairly often for the last couple of years. No sign of nesting yet.

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.

>>> In case someone is tracking/documenting the range expansion of Common Ravens into Seattle. As we know, the first nest was several years ago in Lincoln Park.
>>> Yesterday (6/1) in Westcrest Park I stumbled on an active Common Raven nest. It contained 2 fully feathered nestlings that ought to fledge shortly. No need to post directions - just follow your ears.
>>> Also, it is within 150 feet of an active Cooper's Hawk nest. I would have expected the Coops to not allow a competitor & nest predator to nest that close to their nest.
