Will Oin be the first dwarf that has contact with Roac/ravens in TABA? Can't Post

I can't remember how Roac ends up actually interacting with Thorin in the book - but re the Appendices Oin is described something of a mystic, close to nature and can read signs and symbols and we've already seen him noticing the birds of Erebor.

So - assuming (HOPE) that PJ keeps the ravens in (and there is no reason he shouldn't w. the skills of WETA) was wondering if Oin - currently stuck in Laketown - might be the one who remembers the ravens as messengers and is the first point of contact, so to speak. Perhaps while fleeing Laketown Oin notices ravens overhead (as they tend to congregate over scenes of carnage, usually battlefields) and uses them to find out what is going on in Erebor - e.g. if the dwarves go there for all they know Gloin, Thorin, Bilbo etc. are dead

Or the ravens are near Erebor, watching, but the audience hasn't seen them yet.

Re DOS I didn't notice any ravens flying around the heights of Erebor "Ravens have been seen flying back to the mountain as it was foretold."
