Here is one of my favorite birds. This one just didn't have in him to fly away.

Yeah... this Raven I think was looking for a handout as he didn't seem worried at all with me getting close for the picture.

I've seen them behave that way in National Parks.  We were at Bryce Canyon a number of years ago, and a Raven was hanging out on one of the informational signs at a viewpoint, looking for a handout.  They seem to be less skittish than crows.  My favorite is Gray Jay.  I've had them fly into my car and snatch food off the dashboard.

Wally (or anyone else), I'm hoping you can help with this onne. I believe this bird to be a juvenile left on the nest when we got there but the parents were not to be found so I have no idea what he or she is. As always if you click on the image it will get a little bigger.

If it helps at all this about 2 weeks in western Ohio not far from the PA state line.

I'm not exactly sure what your question is, but around here I haven't seen any Ospreys on their nests is several weeks.  That bird may be a juvenile, but it's hard to tell, since they don't keep their juvenile plumage very long.  At any rate, it certainly looks fully developed and able to fly.  It just may be using the nest as a roosting spot.

How  do you post pictures now that Photobucket has changed the rules?

Sorry Wally, I guess it helps when I actually ask the question. I just didn't know what kind of bird it was. I could tell it wasn't the normal "hawk" that I'm use to seeing because of the longer down turned beak nor was I use to the coloring. I thought it was a juvenile because a few months ago I passed this same nest and in attempting to get a picture I scared off one of the parents who took some kind of animal with it when it flew off.

I use flickr now to post pics. I abandoned photobucket over a year ago now.  If you try to post a pic from there just hit the "share" button and it will give you a link to past here that will work.  I usually delete everything outside of the

Thanks for the  information.  I don't have a flickr account.  Maybe I need to move into the 21st century.  ;D
