Driving towards Koreatown, ran across a raven rooftopping at Kingsley and Beverly. Often see ravens in the Santa Monica / Melrose corridor of Labrea, and yesterday was amused by the single crow mobbing a target hidden to me, which turned out to be a raven. The wind has been very strong, so on the upward swing, the diving bird shoots back up as if hurled out of a cannon.
Google Maps is now rolling out its personalized maps service, so I’ll have to take a look and see if it will be useful. So far as I’ve learned, ravens are spread out foraging across Hollywood during the day in pretty good numbers. The only really interesting thing to learn at this point is whether or not other areas in Los Angeles host as many.
