Happy Mother’s Day to our Raven MoM. We watched Happy Mother’s Day to our Raven MoM. 
We watched excitedly as she gathered supplies for her nest. We listened as she lay  her eggs. We cheered her on as she defended her little family  daily from crow and hawk and eagle.  She gathers the hatchlings food, we enjoy listening to their loud squawks as they beg her for more.  Soon the fledglings she has worked so hard to take care of will leave the nest.  We will be watching them as they explore the ground below. They will learn how to fly amusing us by their efforts.  They  will fly further and further away each evening.  And that’s when she  will know that her job as Raven mom was a job well done. 

Happy Mother’s Day to ALL of our Pratt moms! Thank you  for sharing your little hatchlings with us.  #prattmom
