This evening, saw a crow (might have been small raven but don't think so) in the yard and he had apparently attacked a small bird; might have been a young white-crown or gold finch. The crow flew away and the small bird was flapping around obviously seriously injured. In a couple of minutes, the crow came back, grabbed the small bird and flew away.
