The Raven (corvus corax)
A member of the family Corvidae, the Raven is the worlds largest Crow. It is identified by its heavy and long muscular beak at close range; at long range it is best identified by its overall shape, manner of flight and calls.
Eats almost anything, catches small mammals, birds,carrion and will forage on waste tips.
First time I have been able to get something like a reasonable shot and although I would have wished the beak a bit sharper the rest I hope is not too bad.
Ever grateful for all the votes/comments on the Red Kite and particular thanks to Steve,Derek,TrevB,DerekL and Mike Smith for their flattering UA's.

Love the gloss look on the feathers. A great picture and at 280m you must have been quite close (or is it a crop)
Well caught.

We have a lot of these in my neighborhood. It is amusing in the spring to hear them talking to their young. They have a wide range of vocalizations.

Well done for this one, Ron, despite the very slight softness in the beak and eye, it's a remarkable image.
