Common ravens - Corvus corax - are some of the most victorious birds, if life is a game they're out to win. They have a widespread range throughout North America, Europe and Asia, and are adaptable to many different habitats and climates, staying in their range throughout the year. Part of the Corvidae family, they are among the most intelligent birds and have been recorded as using tools, working cooperatively and even playing. They mate for life, and help keep the environment clean by including carrion in their diet. Now the only question is, have you won as a birder and added the common raven to your life list?
Oh, and wasn't there a football game today?
