Are Ravens Just Really Big Crows on Steroids?
What a fun question! If a raven heard you say that he was a crow, even a BIG crow, he would be terribly insulted! Ravens are extremely intelligent birds and are capable of using tools, planning strategic moves to acquire food or resources, and capable of logical thinking. Ravens also have an important role in Native American theology and folklore. Take the time to watch a raven as it goes about its life on the rim. The raven will watch and observe you right back!! Read more about the raven when you return home or visit one of our many gift shops for books about the raven. They are fascinating creatures.
And so, a crow is a crow forever. And a raven is a magnificent raven evermore.
