A Raven at Breitenbush Hot Springs

One morning at Breitenbush, while I was sitting on a bench reading Girl in Reverse by Barbara Stuber and waiting for the lunch gong, this raven came walking up the sidewalk, much to everyone’s amusement.

He was not at all shy, and I decided to grab my camera.

In another minute he had flapped up to my bench, and started trying to eat my book!

I never expected to get this close to a fearsome looking bird.

A day or so later, I saw him again in a tree right by the kitchen. I think he was waiting for the lunch gong, too. IMG_3164
By the way, Girl in Reverse is an excellent Young Adult book. I enjoyed every bit of it.  It takes place in Kansas City in 1951 and features one of my favorite places, the Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art. I don’t write book reviews, so you can read about it here: http://www.goodreads.com/book/show/18631826-girl-in-reverse

Have a good weekend!
