Ravens and crows are both large black birds found in the Corvidae family, but they are not the same. Ravens are larger than crows and have thicker bills, shaggier plumage and a more wedge-shaped tail. Ravens are also found in a greater variety of habitats, while crows tend to be found more in urban settings. Ravens are usually seen alone or in pairs, while crows are typically seen in larger groups. Ravens also have a more varied diet than crows, eating plants and animals as well as garbage. Ravens are also more vocal than crows, with a wide variety of calls and sounds.
In the wild, ravens are more likely to be found in higher elevations, while crows are more likely to be found in lower elevations. Ravens are also known for their intelligence, which is demonstrated by their ability to solve problems. Crows are also very intelligent, but not as much as ravens. Ravens are also much more playful and acrobatic than crows, often performing feats such as somersaults and barrel rolls in mid-flight.
