I have several ravens that wait patiently on my picnic table in anticipation every Sunday as I fill their feeder. They know the day of the week and the time I'm going to come out, and they show up exactly on time. They also seem to know which feeder is theirs - they don't raid the other feeders. They don't fly away when I come out, and they do seem to look at me when I talk to them. My daughter thinks they're "creepy" because of it (and also because they're huge, black, and have a bad reputation as lamb-killers and carrion-eaters), but I find them fascinating.
