Identification

POWERED BY MERLIN

A huge raven with a massive, bulging bill. There is a white patch on the back of the head and another at the tip of the dark bill. Found from middle to high elevations in a variety of habitats, including grassland, woodland, moorland, rocky areas, towns, and cities. Somewhat like Fan-tailed Raven, but much larger, with a white patch on the head. Large enough to be confused with raptors, but more uniformly black than any raptor. The call is a rattling “g-r-r-r-r-r,” lower and rougher than typical crow and raven vocalizations.
