    speaking of ravens<br /><br />I sure miss those three Disney big black birds<br />sitting on a wire<br />chitter-chattering away<br /><br />and<br /><br />all the &quot;birds&quot; that I&#39;ve ever listened to (or have heard) talk non-stop<br />pretty-much about …. worms, nests, and eggs<br /><br />and wasn&#39;t it &quot;Harriette&quot; that equally helped build that nest with &quot;Henry&
