Lyndon asked Is this a norm for Ravens? As Con rightly wrote, it is known (and for other crow species). As in there is a scattering of prior observations, it comes down to what is “normal” though. It is probably not the usual thing for them to do this.

 Odd behaviour at J.W. yesterday. This Aust. Raven actively covering
whatever it was feeding on, firstly, as in the attached image, and then it
collected a good beak full of leaf litter and placed that on top. Is this a
norm for Ravens?
