a Raven by Amethyst--Dragon a Raven by Amethyst--Dragon
Raven is the common name given to the largest species of birds in the genus Corvus. Corvids are also commonly referred to as 'crows' and other species in the same genus include jackdaws, and rooks.

In much of Europe and North America, raven is used as a synonym for the widespread Common Raven, and much of the literature and culture surrounding ravens refers to that species.

Ravens have high bird intelligence and are perhaps the smartest birds. Their intelligence might be on par with canids like wolves.

That is one magnificent looking bird. But are you sure it's a crow? The bulky torso, short neck, and thick beak would suggest that it's a raven. Although, I can't really say for sure, I'd have to see one of each species standing next to each other. In any case, great job.

On a side note, did you know that they can be taught to talk, like parrots?
