and the thing I keep forgetting to mention - I believe we saw a raven yesterday, as we were walking back to the Adobe parking lot along the water. It was just before we walked under the Fremont bridge - it was sitting on a stone at the water's edge. Size-wise it was on the smallish side, but it had the heavy beak and the glossy blue-black coloring, and the completely silent "I'm not about to open my mouth and give myself away" demeanor I've noticed about them. I'd still be much more in doubt if there had not been a crow proper a few yards off, for comparison. Crows are much less invested in being silent, comparatively speaking, in my experience. They're happy to talk to you, to each other, to themselves...

A raven, in the city! it feels like a good omen, such as it is.
