Photo of the Raven, Corvus corax, the largest “song” bird, notorious for its intelligence! It is mainly a scavenger. It is the first to locate carcasses, and the large scavengers follow. Its populations have been greatly decreased due to poisoning. Once paired, couples remain together for a life time.
