I want to tell you about a Southwest inhabitant that is a joy to watch. The Southwest is home to really big ravens. They are cousins to the Crows back East, but really big! Like when they spread their wings to fly, the wing span can be 4 or more feet. They can weigh two or more pounds. These are birds you can’t miss flying through the sky.

Soaring through the blue skies of Sedona


  1. Very interesting. That would be really neat if ravens could be used as rescue birds. In my book, The Summer of the Crow, now out of print but still some used on Amazon, a boy has a pet crow. I knew nothing of crows so when the boy with the crow came into the story, I had to stop writing and do some research on the bird. Totally fascinating.

    • There are some differences between Crows and Ravens, size and sound being two of them, but they belong to the same family. I have many books about ravens, so if you need information for a future story, let me know. I am working on a non-fiction book for upper elementary children.
