The raven was adopted as Yukon's official bird in 1985 and it is seen everywhere in Yukon. It is a very intelligent bird and an opportunistic feeder, feasting on everything from carrion to groceries left in the back of pick-up trucks.
The raven is the largest member of the crow family and has a body length of up to 70 centimetres.
The raven is called "Crow" by Yukon First Nations people and is the subject of many stories passed from generation to generation. (taken from Yukon Government website)
