Strongly associated with wilderness, when ravens turned up in the intensely urban environment of Barcelona this summer, it caused surprise and excitement. Two young ravens, still weak flyers, were rescued off the street, and set free after a couple of weeks in a wildlife recuperation centre. Regular observations of ravens have been made in the area of Park Ciutadella throughout the summer. By coincidence, ravens have also made an appearance in Manhattan this year.
