Common Raven News

Ravens belong to the corvid family, which are well known for their intelligence. Like other corvids, ravens can mimic sounds from their environment, including human speech. They have a wide range of vocalizations. Ravens are acrobatic fliers, frequently seen making rolls and somersaults in the air. They can be distinguished from crows in flight by their tail shape – ravens have a ‘v’ shaped tail, while crows’ tails appear straight across or slightly rounded. Ravens are also roughly double the size of crows.
