He studies their daily routines, and in the process, paints a vivid picture of the ravens' world. At the heart of this book are Heinrich's love and respect for these complex and engaging creatures, and through his keen observation and analysis, we become their intimates too. Heinrich's passion for ravens has led him around the world in his research. Mind of the Raven follows an exotic journeyfrom New England to Germany, and from Montana to Baffin Island in the high Arcticoffering dazzling accounts of how science works in the field, filtered through the eyes of a passionate observer of nature. Each new discovery and insight into raven behavior is thrilling to read, at once lyrical and scientific.

Many, many thanks to @Hornsby78 and her generosity! As a literary costume award, she sent me this lovely raven picture which I'm sure I'll enjoy many Halloweens from now. I actually admire ravens and their corvid cousins-- they are very intelligent and their IQ more than compensates for their awkward gate and unnerving chatter. They are truly admirable, as was this lovely gift. Thanks Cindy!
