New to Ravens in Hollywood, anyway. Good coverage of the problems that result from feeding wild animals. As we’ve noted, ravens are well above their natural population in LA due to the abundance of human food waste (don’t get us started on the whole issue of wasting food, either!) The effect of this on ravens as wild animals is more subtle than the recent cull of coyotes in Griffith Park. But it can be pointed out that the quality of life for raven chicks and fledglings now being raised just above city streets is not the quality they would have in the wilderness in which they evolved.
Just realized the same thing also applies to homo sapiens… ! Heh.

Almost 6 a.m. and the pathetic strips of grass at a Carl’s Jr are being irrigated by equally pathetic sprinklers – most of the water is running off as waste into the storm drains. But homeowners are getting charged fines if they exceed their quota.

Noticing frequent visits by a pair of ravens here but suspect they are either Iron Mountain or Billy Wilder Square birds.

Ravens want to know when Zeppelin will be flying over Griffith Park. Airship Ventures reservation office not terribly helpful. Hoping online calendar is accurate.
