Have been feeding the birds for years out my back door. Throw out birdseed for the little birds and corn for the squirrels and blue jays and the woodpeckers. Recently a pair of ravens have started showing up and eating the corn too. Fun to watch the squirrel raven interaction as the squirrels try to protect their corn.

Today I took some fat that the Mrs. had trimmed off a ham. It didn't last long as the ravens made off with it. I had placed it on a pizza pan so as not to get dirty. This afternoon when I went out the back door again there was a broken piece of plate right in the middle of the pizza pan. White and green, colorful. I am guessing it was a gift from the ravens.

On a side note the female of the pair has a beak that the bottom mandible is like a spear and the top one crosses over the bottom at an angle. When she picks up a peanut that I toss to them she spears it with the bottom and then hops off to eat it.
