Corvus corax, Raven, Ravn. 64cm.

Raven
A hardy resident that is usual from the upper aboreal zone to the summits.

Their huge nests are made of twigs and mud, then lined with grass. These nests are on ledges, often with an overhang, or rarely in trees.

They are very acrobatic flyers. Usually single or in pairs and seldom gregarious. They eat carrion, small mammals, other birds' eggs and young birds, insects and large seeds. The male and female are alike.
