Hi Craig,

            You wrote of ravens taking yellow golf balls and asked:
> Do ravens have a particular preference for different coloured golf balls?

I recall that when I was a student in Canberra in the late '40s, the local
corvids at the Red Hill golf course were notorious for taking golf balls -
and all golf balls were white in those days.

Never lost any myself.  Maybe because my ball never got far enough away from
me for a corvid to feel safe?

(Don't remember now whether they were crows or ravens - whatever Canberra
