Top bird

Rickard submissively backing away from Siden
This week we have some constuction work going on next to the aviaries, so the ravens have some time off from training. But as soon as I came out they all fly down to see what funny or edible stuff I might bring today. And all birds want to be first. At times like this, it's good to be the top bird; you just walk around, looking hard and strong, and the other birds immediately retreat  - all fluff and bows.
If you are the undisputed dominant bird, it seems as if little aggression is needed to keep the others off. Just look how effectively Siden (silver ring) shoos away all other birds but his sister Juno (orange ring) - just by walking around in a certain manner.
