Dear Ones,

Here are some ravens at Lake Piru who are unwilling to change their ways! There is a Summary after the video …

SUMMARY OF THE VIDEO

Raven 1 (in a rather rough voice): Hawk, hawk, hawk.

Raven 2 (in a higher voice): Hawk, hawk, hawk.

Raven 1 (in a rather rough voice): Hawk, hawk, hawk.

Raven 2 (in a higher and louder voice): Hawk, hawk.

Three raven voices intermixed: Hawk, hawk … (etc.)

Alice: Heron. Heron. Heh. Heh. Heh.

Raven 1 maybe (in a rather rough voice): Hawk, hawk, hawk.

Alice: Heron. Heron. Heron. (Shows grey heron standing in a cow pasture.)

Well, as you can see, so far, I have not convinced these ravens that a heron is not a hawk. Any large bird that is not a raven they currently call a hawk.

I tried: Heh, heh, heh … and Heron, heron, heron.

I might try some other word later on. It has to be some word that is easy to pronounce, I feel.

In love, light and joy
I Am of the Stars
