Ravens have excellent eyesight. They can fly upwards of 30-35 mph, ranging 30-40 miles from their nest during the day. Even more important, these birds are smart. They are considered one of the smartest birds in the world, after parrots. They are excellent problem solvers, and have been known to employ tools, i.e., sticks, stones, etc., to get what they want. A researcher back East set up an experiment with ravens to see if they could obtain some food from a machine he set up that dispensed food when a coin was inserted. It wasn’t long before the raven caught on and put the coin in the machine! Some smart bird!
