Rose-Breasted Grosbeak n.d. Joseph Bartholomew Kidd (1808-1889)

One of my absolute favourite birds.  Seeing one of these will take your breath away.  The males’ breast is so much more vivid then it is depicted here, but that’s to be expected w/ antique prints.  They sing beautifully too.

State of Idaho plans to poison up to 4,000 Common Ravens. 
Justification: Ravens prey on the eggs of the imperiled Greater Sage-Grouse. Yet of 19 reasons for the grouse’s declining numbers, predation by other wildlife comes in at #12. Providing protected areas and requiring sustainable land management are the most important ways to conserve the grouse, not killing avian predators.

killing one species to ‘protect’ another is a horrible approach to anything. Have people not learned by now? And how many other animals would this inevitably poison? Ones that would also not only ingest the poison, but the poisoned bird carcasses.What is wrong with people.

Crows and Ravens hold a sacred position in the Mythos of North America, they should be honored and revered not murdered.

I LOVE RAVENS SO MUCH PLEASE DON’T LET THEM KILL THESE RAVENS

PLEASE take a moment to sign and reblog! Corvids are my absolute favorite bird, they’re so smart and beautiful and absolutely amazing! I can’t believe this would be approved!

The most ridiculous part about this is that the sage grouse has become endangered due to human activities - us moving into their territory, etc., and there isn’t actually any proof that killing these ravens would do anything to protect the sage grouse! It might work and it might not, it’s basically just a shot in the dark, but either way this is NOT the answer! We need to change our own behavior, not punish an animal for being a predator!

Ravens are indeed a marvel.  They are especially amazing in flight.
