She's sending Ravens to taunt Californians. :D

But is it in locals' imaginations that they now seem to see ravens all over town?

The answer, apparently, is no.

“Ravens' numbers have exploded,” said Will Richardson, co-executive director of the Tahoe Institute for Natural Science. “They are very clever. They're very smart. They are very good at exploiting any niche they can find.”

Janice Follmer, a 20-year-resident of Crystal Bay, said she has noticed more ravens in the area over the past few years.

“They freaked me out,” said Follmer, who said she often passed a few of the birds while walking her dog, who recently died. “They're kind of scary. They just watch you. My old dog didn't move very fast and I thought they could just take my dog away.

This description of a "group of ravens" is too much!

"That ganging up may account for the name given to groups of ravens. Unlike the cute-ish “covey of quails,” a group of ravens is referred to as an “unkindness” or a “conspiracy.” There it is, proof of the conspiracy!

A few years ago my family and I spent some time at the Grand Canyon and saw ravens. They are a lot larger than crows and kind of scary looking. Perfect mascot, don't you think?

There are a lot of ravens here in the Midwest, always see them on the side of the highways. Lots of trees nearby, so perfect weather, perfect hunting ground and perfecting nesting areas.

Now if I could just get rid of that red-tail hawk that keeps hanging around.

They're also the guardians of the Crown of England. I think our mascot is pretty damn cool. http://en.wikipedia....Tower_of_London

Do Panda's eat hawks? Could they?

He who laughs when things go wrong has thought of someone to blame it on.
Scientists tell us that the fastest animal on Earth, with a top speed of 120 feet-per-second, is a cow that has been dropped out of a helicopter.
Entropy just isn't what it used to be.
Never, under any circumstances, take sleeping pills and a laxative on the same night.

Why do you want to get rid of the hawk? Hawks are cool to watch.

I agree, hawks are cool to watch. Just not cool to watch them try to attack your pug on a regular basis.
