Identification

POWERED BY MERLIN

Common in varied open and semiopen habitats from towns and farmland to open woodland and moorland; replaced to south and west by Carrion Crow. Found in pairs or small groups, not usually in large flocks except at roosts. Unless seen in poor light or at a distance, plumage is distinctive, with ashy gray body, contrasting black head, wings, and tail. With distant flying birds, note that ravens soar and glide readily, whereas crows typically just flap along.
