Late Friday afternoon, while guiding a group of Cub Scouts on a birding field trip at the Education Center, Tom Parlapiano caught sight of a larger than usual crow. Another second of observation, and he realized he had a raven.

Northern Raven, Corvus corax

The scouts had a chance to try out their binoculars on the raven - while Tom tried to impress upon them how special the bird really was.

Other birds Tom reported from the outing with the cub scouts, which are additions to my list from last week:
Ruby-crowned Kinglet
Golden-crowned Kinglet
Turkey Vulture
Red-tailed Hawk
Gray Catbird
Carolina wren

So, the week's list grew from my paltry 27 to an impressive 35, with the help of many extra pairs of eyes!
