According to a new study, Ravens numbers are up across the west, partially due to the birds’ ability to take advantage of power lines and power poles to get an advantage. Turns out the birds have learned to nest on the poles, which give them an inroad to more remote parts of the state, and give them a huge advantage to see prey. But we always knew these guys were super smart, right?
