US ravens build nests on power lines

4 posts in this topic

Ravens in the US are building their nests on electricity power lines and using the height to target their prey, according to new research.

The scientists say the majority of ravens in the study area were now living on transmission poles and posed a bigger threat to endangered species.

Raven numbers in western states have increased by more than 300% in the past 40 years, say the researchers.

Ravens are among the most intelligent of birds...I'm not surprized they're doing this.

I have watched a crow build a nest above a transformer on a powerline. I'm pretty sure he bui;t there because of the heat coming off of it.
