North American Raven (Corvus corax)

Much larger than the American crow, the Raven is more angular with a hooked beak. The average wing span of the American crow averages 2.5ft where as the Raven averages 4ft and weighs nearly 4 times more.

Ravens are predators and are very adaptive, preferring sheep carrion, a livestock industry alive and well in the Texas Hill Country.
