General Information


Crows and Ravens belong to the same family of birds known as "Corvidae", which in fact, also includes Magpies and Jays.

Being all black, from "head to toes", they are easily recognized. However, it is quite difficult to tell apart a large Crow from small Raven.

Due to their deep black plumage and their rather irritating calls, we usually don't think of Ravens as songbirds, but they are actually the largest of them all.
