Common Raven Sedona 1

“Sedona”

Common Raven 
Corvus corax

Sedona was brought to a rehabilitator in Sedona, AZ, in 1996, as a juvenile with a fractured right wing. A year later, she came to VINS for permanent residence, due to the wing not healing well enough for flight.
Ravens are some of the most intelligent birds in the world, known for their ability to solve problems, use tools, and mimic unusual sounds and even human voices. To stimulate the raven's brains, our volunteers hide pieces of food around their enclosure. However, our ravens don’t seem particularly interested in puzzles or toys—Sedona and Middlebury devote most of their attention to each other! They often preen one another or perch closely together with their beaks interlocked.
The Center for Wild Bird Rehabilitation ensures that all exhibit birds receive biannual health checks and a variety of nutritious foods. Our ravens are one of our few non-raptor species, so they must eat fruit and vegetables in addition to meat. Corn, apples, and peanuts are some of their favorites.
