I'll put my ravens up against anything in the animal kingdom!
Once you get to know the raven, there are few animals on the planet that can compare in both craftiness and intelligence.
And with the exception of some dolphins, seals, otters and monkeys, none play, tease and have as much fun as the raven.
If you enjoy real stories about animals, check out our fun selections below. My favorite, Bob, Huey & Me is available in
both book and a DVD movie where the entire cast is made up of wild ravens!

You'll find the Movie "Bob, Huey & Me" on DVD here!

The true story of a baby raven Rick & Diana raised to be wild. He took over the neighborhood, letting the dogs out, teasing the crows and more.


In “Backyard Beginnings” Rick uses his unique relationship with ravens and a love of nature to share his secret to a "happy life."

A raven is not a crow! It's classification places it in the "crow family" but tomatoes are placed in the fruit family but we use them as vegetables. Ravens and crows are very different. Size and certain physical features to be sure but more importantly it's how they live and raise their family and where they live that makes them so unique.

Follow Raven Rick as he and his wife traverse across the western United States sharing some of their favorite places to watch these amazing birds in their natural habitats. See and hear the ravens in the beauty of Bryce, The Grand Canyon, The Pacific Northwest, Catalina Island, all throughout Southern California's mountains, deserts, parks and more.

Rick's first year video taping the ravens. Crystal Cove State Park is California's most unique in many ways including the numerous raven families that raise their young year after year. Meet Harold and Maude, and the challenges they had both feeding and bringing up three of their kids; Edgar, Allan and Poe in amongst the coyotes, bobcats, hawks and other natural enemies.

Rick second year with the birds he calls Harold & Maude. Now they've become his most trusted guide to their area of the park and Rick is convinced, nobody knows their territory like a raven.

Rick's third year just may he best year ever? It's a record year at Crystal Cove's California State Park as Harold & Maude have six healthy baby ravens. The highs and lows of life at the park run the gauntlet as some unknown something is killing off everything. Birds, fish even the large marine mammals are dying off in record numbers. A magnificent brood but how many can make it to adulthood?
