As long as we are on birds, here are some quotes from raven expert Bernd Heinrich, who clearly enjoys his work:
— “There is no greater pleasure than eating roasted moose while resting under a spruce and contemplating ravens.”
— A bit Kurtz-like: “6:30 a.m. I hear again the low, almost nonchalant deep quorks, but now there is also a new sound: some hollow, gong-like quorks.”
— Even more Kurtz-like: “Although I howled throughout the year, I noted most responses of ravens in the fall and winter.”
