This photo was quite a challenge. It's a raven. I don't see them very  
often and if I do I can't get close enough to photograph them. I was  
sitting at the computer sorting photos and I kept hearing like a  
clucking noise outside. I went outside and saw this raven high up in  
the tree. The problem is it was fairly dark out and snowing lightly.  
Also the raven looks pitch black against the light sky. Backlit isn't  
good. Anyway I took the shot (many shots) anyway and this is the best  
I could get.
