The Overachiever Golden Eagle, Common Raven – The Overachiever

The Overachiever

     There was an “unkindness” of Common Ravens congregated around a deer carcass very close to the road and in the middle sat a regal Golden Eagle.  As we passed by, the entire group exploded in a maelstrom of motion.  Several Ravens followed the eagle, which touched down on a pile of nearby rocks.  Harassment of the apex predator continued until this intrepid corvid forced the massive accipiter to flight.  The Raven certainly appeared to be quite the overachiever.

     Mobbing is a defense behavior, but in this case, also gave the Ravens the benefit of procuring an easy meal.
