personal critter zoo of molli the woodtagger
Your zoo is wonderful!&nbsp; I just love that raven (hate to say I would have been tempted to &quot;fly&quot; him home with me if I found him in the woods too)<br />
&nbsp;i would have expected him to be adopted earlier, but it took some weeks. before i had to steel him back: my teenage-son didnt want him to be set free in the wood and had him hidden in his room.&nbsp;<br /> so i made another one, the big-beek-type at the end of the show. he is still in custody upstairs.<br /> the raven is a tribute to our first pair of nesting ravens for many years, and they brought up one single youngster last year. i watched him take his flight lessons together with his parents last summer. this years nesting business has already started and one parent bird is always on their huge nest. i can still watch him from the hiking path as long as the trees havent so many leaves, as you can see in the picture. (it is a very small black spot in the center.)<br /> <br />
Thanks so much for the wonderful story behind the raven.&nbsp; I think it is so sweet that your son hid him in his room.&nbsp; We have ravens here in Montana too, but I've never seen any nesting.&nbsp; I love watching them soar overhead.&nbsp; What a glorious bird and I love yours.&nbsp; Glad it's still in the woods!<br />
I could see somebody walking through the woods at night getting the crap scared out of them from those first two :)
&nbsp;lol so true&nbsp;
yeah, wouldn't that be fun to watch.
&nbsp;some crazy random guys just appear and start laughing
lol yeah
&nbsp;kinda creepy but indeed it is hilarious
yeah, that would be REALLY&nbsp;odd to see on a hike.
&nbsp;when i fixed the beaverface to the oak &nbsp;i had two hikers as a giggling audience passing by...<br /> first time at all i got caught in the act.
So, you make these and leave them in trees?<br /> <br /> Or do you retrieve them after the photos?<br /> <br /> <br />
&nbsp;those in the trees are made especially for the place and i leave them in the wood. &nbsp;though it isnt always easy when they look at you!
Wow.&nbsp; Cool.<br /> <br /> How long do they last before unravelling / being stolen / eaten?<br />
now, in spring birds stuff there homes with the wool, so the beaverface &nbsp;is quite battered by now . i made it in octobre. the raven was &quot;stolen&quot; after three weeks.&nbsp;
If you do leave them I hope you use natural yarns.<br />
