Common raven (Corvus corax) in flight on one of the Los Candeleros Islets in the Bahia de Loreto National Park, the Baja Peninsula and Sea of Cortez, Mexico.
Ravens love to fly and appear to revel in it more than any other birds that I have observed. There was a steep cliff on the seaward side of the islet where I was camping and the thermal updraughts from the ocean blasted vertically up its face. The ravens loved to play there, getting carried abruptly aloft, and then tumbling and rolling back down before taking the elevator back up again.
