This morning (04/12) I watched a Common Raven for a few minutes in
Kingsport.  The raven was perched in a tree in the Brook's Plumbing parking
lot facing Netherland Inn road near it's intersection with Wilcox Drive.  It
was watching traffic and waiting for an opportunity to fly down and get a
nice piece of roadkill that was in the middle of the road.  The crows were
treating this raven just as they would a hawk, with mobbing and loud calls.
The raven finally got an opportunity to grab the carrion and then flew off
in the direction of the Domtar Paper Mill.
