Hi Guys

I am living in Japan and have an adopted family of either Japanese Ravens or Large Billed Crows. They are amazing flyers and their wings swoosh loudly as they fly along beside me.
I am an artist and have begun a series of works on them. I visit then every two days in their territory which they jealously guard. They call out and fly down when I come to see them and I can get within a metre. They are glossy black all over, even their legs and eyes. When they turn in the sun their feathers shimmer blue.
