Raven Couple Goes for a Lazy Stroll

I've observed a noisy raven couple in the neighborhood the last few days.

There footprints are huge! They look like velociraptor tracks. (At least, I sure hope they are only raven tracks)  If you look closely, I've included a 2 inch long black dog tag for scale.

One of the ravens was dragging it's wing tips on the ground as it took a long walk in the snow.

Beautiful Soft Rime Ice

One of the joys of living up in the Colorado Rockies is the appearance of rime ice a few times a year.  Here is some of the prettiest soft rime ice I've ever seen, taken on April 1 (no joke!) 2017.
