The Travels of Tug 44

Common Raven

The Common Raven is a large bird that eats nearly anything, including seeds, bugs, worms, mice and other small animals. My farmer friend complains they get in his hen house and steal the eggs. They do have about a 3 inch long beak, so gripping eggs is a possibility. These guys have about a 5 foot wingspread.

I met this one at the Winter Raptor Fest at our local Washington County Fair Grounds.   high-res
