A close encounter with a Raven from Paros island where it still has a healthy population. Although Corvidae are the cleverest of all the birds and can adapt and feed with several different food sources the beautiful jet black and biggest of all, Raven (Κόρακας) is in decline.

Common Nightingale (Αηδόνι). Easily heard but very difficult to see it as it uses to sing well hidden in the dense foliage of shrub vegetation. I photographed it in the open – just before sundown – after a long time of patience.
