46 thoughts on “A LOVELY RITA

  1. Once upon a midnight dreary, while I pondered, weak and weary,
    Over many a quaint and curious volume of forgotten lore—
    While I nodded, nearly napping, suddenly there came a tapping,
    As of someone gently rapping, rapping at my chamber door.
    “’Tis some visitor,” I muttered, “tapping at my chamber door—
    Only this and nothing more.”

    1. they sure are! I make sure to talk to them each time. The more they become familiar with me the more they will react.
      Just last night Robbie went over me while out in the harbour and he cawed to me!

  2. She is a beauty, no site of the male yet? I can’t wait to get up to my farm, I know now that the two birds I have been watching up there for the last few years are ravens. They must go back to the same nesting sites every year. I always have two, and I watched them feed a younger one last year. Their calls are very distint. I will have to name those two this year like you do. Have a good day Wayne.

  3. Rita is attentive when she sees you, posing pretty in the first shot, giving you a little side eye while you focus on taking a picture of that long and lethal-looking beak. Now I have an earworm for “Lovely Rita Meter Maid”.

    1. thank you Lavinia! I love getting out there with my friends and seeing what will happen?
      Each photo shoot is different!
      I didn’t go out tonight…….not many clouds but sunset turned out to be great! I look at the satellite feed and local weather report to see If I should go out? Miscalculated for tonights sunset…..oh well.
      Rita and Robbie are always interesting to watch! Robbie beat the crap out of a Gull today!

  4. They are special and once someone told me they have the intelligence of a two year old but I don’t know…this one has a unique shaped head 🤓☀️☺️ hello Wayne hope you’re well ~ smiles Hedy 🙋‍♀️
