The Raven. Corvus corax - in UK, not in HK

Raven. Corvus corax

- in UK, not in HK

The raven is a huge crow – by far the largest passerine (perching bird) with a wingspan of up to 1.5m.

Ravens can be mistaken for carrion crows and it’s hard judge its relative size: look out for a stronger and heavier bill, a ruffle of throat feathers and a long, wedge-shaped tail.

The best give-away for raven ID is their exceptionally deep and gravelly call.

I took these pics in Bushy park a few weeks ago...
