Common Raven

By: Jerry Poindexter
Common Raven

The common raven (Corvus corax) is a deep, glossy black bird that ranges from 22 to 261 /2 inches in length. It has pointed wings and elongated and pointed throat feathers. The raven is similar to the common crow but is much larger with a much heavier bill. The raven is generally found in mountainous cliffs but also in forests and deserts and is often observed taking two to three hops before it can become airborne. It is largely a scavenger, seen looking for food along roadsides and garbage dumps, and will eat crustaceans, bird eggs, insects, and berries.
