Common Raven

Common Raven
Mill Valley, California, USA
Member of the Crows and Jays Family
§An Unkindness of Ravens§

~true bird fact~ I've already gone on for quite some time on the intelligence of birds in the family Corvidae (crows and jays, as well as our raven friend here). Crows are considered to be some of the most intelligent and do things like recognize cause and effect, and engage in recreational play using sticks as 'toys'.

Extremely symbolic/ominous/portentous (further reading)
Will challenge you to games of logic and wit, which you will certainly lose
Enjoys serious pursuits. Doesn't understand frivolity
The messenger of the bird gods
Not so good at socializing with other birds
