Station of the Raven VIII:

Wise Cracker

When an easy meal like dropped French fries, landfill delight, or dog chow is not to be found, the raven, like some other birds, will go all out for a seafood dinner. Taking a mussel or clam for a flight into the sky, the raven drops the shellfish onto cement or rocks below. The same shell may need to be dropped repeatedly until it cracks and the bird swoops down to retrieve the meal inside.
