Howling at the moon

This raven was making strange “glou glou” sounds from the top of a telephone pole. 

What do those mean?

  1. Ah, I love that sound. To me, it means that it’s spring.

    If you want to read a neat book on ravens and the sounds they make, check out “Mind of the Raven: Investigations and Adventures with Wolf-Birds”.

  2. Cool, thanks. The title “wolf birds” has me interested!

  3. I’ve read that the uses of ravens’ vocalizing vary by population. For the ones here, it looks to me like it’s either a mating call or a territorial thing.
