      UPDATED: MESSAGE BOARDS CLOSING AFTER DRAFT   03/08/2017

      After careful consideration, we have decided that we will sunset our message boards after this year's NFL Draft. Since we opened our boards a decade ago, the digital landscape has greatly evolved. While we understand there remains a smaller group of highly-engaged fans who participate in conversation in our forums, a significant amount of the dialogue about our team and our games has migrated away to other social media platforms over the past several years. Our message boards will remain up and running through Friday, May 5th, and will be removed on May 6th. We recognize that this change may upset avid members of our community. However, we look to utilize our time and resources to focus on how we can best connect with our fans across an array of digital/social outlets. If you are not already engaging us and other members of the Ravens Flock on our Facebook page, Instagram account, through Twitter or Snapchat, we invite you to follow us on those channels and continue to participate in our social communities. In addition, the commenting feature on our website articles will remain intact. Members will be able to continue using their boards account to log in and share their thoughts at the bottom of every news story. We’d like to thank all the Flock members and our moderators who have brought thoughtful conversation to this space and made our community great for the last 10 years. Ravens Social Media Hub »

She's sending Ravens to taunt Californians. :D

[quote]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.[/quote]

Ah Mother Nature, I love you.

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

[b]"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.” [/b]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?

[font=trebuchet ms,helvetica,sans-serif][i]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.[/i][/font]

[font=trebuchet ms,helvetica,sans-serif][i]Now if I could just get rid of that red-tail hawk that keeps hanging around.[/i][/font]

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

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

[i][font=trebuchet ms,helvetica,sans-serif]I agree, hawks are cool to watch. Just not cool to watch them try to attack your pug on a regular basis.[/font][/i]
