Hi all,

I always assumed Ravens (and other stick-builders) just used twigs/branches they found lying around.

This morning I watched an Australian Raven making repeated trips to a jacaranda and breaking off twigs/small branches for use in it’s nest in a nearby gum tree.

It also visited a dead cheesetree for more material.

From the snapping sounds, it seems all the jacaranda branches/twigs were dead/dry, but the tree itself is alive and kicking.
