So, now that you’ve all become experts (ha!) on the differences between Ravens and Crows, I have a quiz.


What am I?

    Raven?…. just look at my beak! (Now slinking away in case I am so incorrect.) :c)

    I have to agree. Look at that beak! It must be a raven.

    I think it’s a raven – the beak has that downward curve and it’s puffing up the feathers on its head. I’ve never seen a crow with a head of feathers like that.

    I think it looks like a raven too, except that it looks a bit small.

    I don’t think you have any crows in your area! Must be a Raven!

    I am pretty sure that it is a raven. This morning I was too chicken (Ha! Chicken!) to leave a comment because no one else had commented yet, but now that other people have weighed in…definitely a raven.

    Coming from the land of many ravens, I have to go with RAVEN.

    I’m going to swim against the current and call it a crow.

    I’m so proud of all of you. Here’s the deal — unless you see them together — or see them up close — it can be hard to tell ravens from crows.

    Mon@rch, we have BOTH here and I’ve seen some amazing interactions between them — both benign and negative.

    The majority call it a raven and that’s what I think it is too. However, it is a small one so it is probably a young raven. The size of the beak and the ruff around the head are what tipped me off. Plus, I had the advantage of seeing it move around and it seemed “raven-like” to me. 🙂

    Still, these are tough birds to ID so I’m not going to give Susan a hard time on this one — she hasn’t made fun of me for getting raptors wrong! 🙂

    Next up . . . is it an Allen’s Hummingbird or a Rufus Hummingbird? (Joke — that’s even harder than telling these two apart!)

    Thanks for participating in my first quiz!
