After young ravens fledge they hang out with their parents for one to six weeks and putter with their siblings. Sometimes they pick mock fights and wrestle like puppies.

@CrytzerFry’s camera trap caught them in the act.

Ravens just wanna have fun. 😉

p.s. How do we know these are young ravens? The gape (opening of their beaks) and mouth are pink — even pinker when they are younger.
