Documenting the lives of wild ravens.

The Raven Diaries, stories for "kids" of all ages who enjoy animals that play!

Welcome to The Raven Diaries where all life is celebrated through personal relationships with real wild ravens. Rick and Diana's goal is to share much of the magic and beauty this incredible world has to offer with an ever evolving virtual video diary of the couples numerous experiences with these wildly fascinating birds. Rick has always had great respect for the raven but in 1999 he and his wife Diana took on the challenge of teaching a 15 day old baby raven to both fly and then return safely back into the wild. Their story "Bob, Huey & Me" was first created as a picture book for family, but soon after Rick began video taping wild ravens for a movie version to be put on DVD. "Bob, Huey & Me" chronicles the couples escapades with both an adult crow (Bob) and then Huey the baby raven.

Why video?

Rick likes to share most of his raven research through video, it helps keep him honest. So you, the viewer, are able to see, hear and share in the real story. We're human, and even the most sincere scientist, a prior bias can sometimes influence and change reality. Rick says,"books are great, but many times I find the truth stretched a bit to tell a better story and the truth is wild enough!" So in most all his films, The Raven Diaries chooses to use raw video and most, if not all, the actual sound track as it was recorded in the field.

Your State and Federal Tax Dollars Not At Work!

It's nice to live in a world where many are concerned and want to donate to further the education of all wildlife. Unfortunately, The Raven Diaries isn't set up to take donations. All funding for research is through the sales of it's numerous information and education videos, movies and books found at The Store and through their Amazon Store. So they appreciate those who want to help, and the best way is simply to purchase what you are interested in and to give them as gifts to help spread the word. Thank you, in advance!
