Common Raven (Corvus corax)
Lives in a variety of habitats including rocky seacoasts, canyons, boreal forests, foothills, deserts, and mountains even above the treeline. Often seen along highways searching for carrion.
This juvenile raven was found hiding under a car in a parking lot. It appears to have been raised as a pet because it would open its beak and beg for food (just like a baby bird) whenever people approached. It also wanted to use people's shoulders as a perch.
