Hanging Ravens of Önundarfjörður

Fishdrying was (is?) common in the area of the Westfjords I’m in now and on the way to Flateyri I stopped to take a picture of some old drying racks. I came upon the arresting sight of several dead Ravens tied to the racks as if to be a warning to others not to come near. Arresting to me of course due to my love of Corvids in general and Ravens in particular. Not a day has gone by without me seeing one or more fly overhead, or hearing their crunking call, sad to think this is the ‘best’ close up I’ll get.
