Can these birds actually tell what sort of lens you've got attached?

Back in January I was at Langwell Valley in Scotland, hoping for a Golden Eagle. Just before we were due to leave I decided that I was out of luck, so I popped on the short lens for some landscape shots. Three minutes later a wonderful Golden Eagle flew almost overhead and was mobbed by a Raven (can a single bird 'mob'?). It would have made a great shot, beautifully emphasizing the size of the Eagle. I'm sure it had been flying about in the distance just waiting for me to remove the long lens.
