Common Ravens aren’t as social as crows; you tend to see them alone or in pairs except at food sources like landfills. Ravens are confident, inquisitive birds that strut around or occasionally bound forward with light, two-footed hops. In flight they are buoyant and graceful, interspersing soaring, gliding, and slow flaps.
Ravens are considered to have a stable population and might even be increasing in number.
Ravens live in both open land and forested habitats across the United States.
Ravens are omnivores but have a strong preference for meat. They will eat grains and berries but can most often be seen eating carrion and garbage. They also prey on small rodents and eggs of other birds.
Ravens are stark black birds with thick necks. Their tails are wedge shaped in flight.
