    I have lived with ravens nesting on the cliff behind my house for 30 years, and they are wonderful neighbors. They greet me when I leave the house (they: grokk-grokk; me: hey!Hey!); they patrol my road for edible cast-offs; they are entertaining aerobats. I have watched a raven drive a peregrine falcon to safety in the woods — talk about speedsters! And yes, they happily share the roadkill with others who will open the carcass.
