What's for dinner?

Ravens eat carrion (dead animals) along with seeds, nuts, and insects.

Ravens are highly intelligent birds and live in a variety of locations including mountains, valleys, and coastlines. They move slow on the ground but are quite active in the air. Often mistaken for the common crow, the raven is larger and has shaggy feathers. Ravens will live in the same area for years and will use a nest year after year to raise their chicks (babies).
