Unedited video just for the record - and cam#1 was glitchy again - Raven took donut on its third visit of the day:

Kind regards, Ann
Good idea--I should do the same; I usually forget to print things, so need to go searching. By the way, we are booked to visit the area at the same time as we did last year (August)--hope we can meet up. Hope to see a few other folks that week as well.
