    There are a pair of them that hang out about a half mile up the hill. I mostly hear them and rarely see them very close. I had a wheel barrow in the garage overnight with the guts from a deer. I haven't wheeled them 30 yds from my house and here's the
    Ravens right over the top of me. Is it there eyesight or sense of smell?

    They've been known to follow wolves before a kill even happens, so for anything they've been watching you and waiting :eek:

    Sounds like big brother. I hope the government never programs ravens to watch us.

    Ravens have very poor sense of smell as Bernd Heinrich found out in an experiment he wrote about in his book The Mind of the Raven. Other studies also back this up. It's likely they have been spying on you even when you're not aware of it, as ShamanCoyote suggested. =)
