Ravens in my garden


By lilypad


I remember asking if anyone could identify these two large black birds for me. My cousin from the R.S.P.B has positively identified them as ravens. They visit on a daily basis but read my mind when trying to photograph them. I have lots of distat shots but no close ups I will try to get them zoomed up to post. Does anyone else have such visitors?

Only crows and magpies here I'm afraid, plus robin and blue tit. Ravens are smaller than crows aren't they? or are they from the same family?

No Ravens are the largest all black perching birds in the world I'm told.
