More super adorable raven behavior.
Chances are, these ravens are also these guys who were seen last year at the exact same spot..and awesomly enough, performing the same behavior.

When I worked with 'Alala, this sort of behavior was part of pair-bonding.  The male would grab the female by the beak and hold it, gently shake it, or make regurgitation motions without regurgitating.  Sometimes they'd just hold beaks very still for a few seconds, in a way that reminded me of human couples hand-holding.  The females occasionally grabbed back or initiated grabbing, but it would usually end with her beak inside his.

That is adorable. I thought it might have something to do with pair bonding. Didn't manage to catch any raven pairs this year. Just a single raven who was pretty chatty.

Left Raven: There's something stuck in my throat
Right Raven: Let me have a look...*Goes in and comes out soon after* Well I couldn't find anything but I did cut out your tonsils. Is that okay with you? :3

Awesome! Not enough people take the time to appreciate the corvids. Every time I'm around Yellowstone most people just pass up the birds. But I've been able to see some adorable behaviors by sitting around and watching a pair.
