The most asked question in the field is how do you get so close to the wild ravens. First is trust. Never move too quickly, Never give them a reason to fear you. But Rick also learned that when he began moving "road kill" off to the side of the roads and pathways, so that other animals wouldn't get hit when trying to feed, the ravens took notice. Soon they began looking for him and watching him! So you can do a service by safely moving road kill off the road, you'll prevent other animals from getting the same, and maybe make friends with some ravens at the same time. Please don't bring dead animals from other areas, you could be transporting harmful creatures or bacteria that could do more harm than good!
