Boyd the Raven

Adventurer and photographer Brian Weed was visiting a friend in Auke Bay near Juneau when he came across Boyd, a wild but tame raven. Boyd has a history of going from house to house begging for food. According to Weed, “Boyd comes by for breakfast often. It appears Boyd is not afraid of people as I was able to pet him, just about anywhere except his feet. He bit me (hard enough to say ouch, but not break the skin) his way of telling me no.” Boyd likes shiny things, which Weed says “is fun at first but when he starts dropping tools on you as you work on your truck he is not much fun.”To submit your video to Alaska Dispatch News contact Tara Young at tara(at)
