Bird of the Month: Raven

Thursday, November 7, 2013

We found this guy at Town Center Community Park.

They're sometimes called the Common Raven or the Northern Raven. But there’s nothing at all common about the raven, which is the largest passerine (perching) bird and highly intelligent.

 Ravens are different from crows in that they are larger, have heavier beaks and sport shaggy feathers around the throat. In flight, crows have cut-off tails, while ravens have rounded wedge-shaped tails.

 Ravens thrive in a variety of climates and are opportunistic, feeding on everything from road kill to grain, insects, small mammals and human garbage.
