A bird can't preen its own head with its bill, so they use their feet to clean head feathers. In a few social species, like ravens, flock-mates preen each other.

This post brings you the amazing world of James and Margaret. I found this pair of ravens on Instagram...
Following this instagram account gives you a daily peek into the lives of the lucky residents of a backyard habitat created by thoughtful animal advocates who reside in the Los Angeles area. There are many characters to follow.... There's Mumford the Turkey Vulture, Miss Bonita the ground squirrel, and nocturnal creatures captured on cleverly placed cameras near a bubbling water feature.
I encourage you to follow along for a daily dose of joy and to remember that we are not the most important species on this planet....we are just one of many equally important residents.
