Observation details

At first it seemed like there were two ravens, but there was only one making a variety of calls in a conifer for over five minutes of which 2.5 minutes of audio was used. The raven seemed to be chatting to itself or an unidentified woodpecker that left the same tree after a while. The raven did change trees from across the creek at about 100 yds to about 50 yds up the creek from the microphone. This move is evident in the improved audio at about 2:05, so background sound from Candle Creek was reduced considerably as the microphone changed direction to be parallel to the flow.
