Next up: Raven. Ravens are fascinating birds. We see them daily here in Southern Arizona, yet this photo was taken on the Columbia Glacier in British Columbia. We see them here on the desert floor but also on Mount Lemmon at 9,000 feet.
Ravens are very intelligent. In places where wolves live Ravens often follow wolf packs knowing that a meal is not too far away. In Southern Arizona they follow hawks in the winter or turkey vultures in the summer for the same reason.
Ravens have one of the longer lifespans of birds at 21 years.
In today's photo the Raven is sitting on a patch of snow.
