Vigilant Young Corvid

This young raven keeps her eye on the sky,
tracking friends or foes of which there are both in this area.
She's hyper-vigilant.
Common ravens, of all birds,
know a raptor's aggression soars when hungry.
She's ready to soar, herself.

Away from a hawk?
Towards a parent's waiting snack?

She's growing up fast in the wild suburban world.
