Ketchikan, Alaska - Ravens can grow to the size of a large hawk, and may live 25 - 50 years - usually on the shorter side in the wild... or eating French fries?

Raven with French fry...

This ingenious and versatile bird has long been recognized as one of the most intelligent birds. The ravens are members of the crow family, which includes jays and magpies, and are found everywhere in the northern hemisphere. They adapt to very different terrain, from deserts to mountains to rainforests - a feat that definitely requires high intelligence.
