Range and Habitat:  Ravens are found throughout North America, Eurasia, North Africa, and far south to the mountains of South America They are extremely common in woodlands, usually in coniferous forests and along rocky coastlines. While they prefer forests, ravens can survive in arid deserts and mountains in the West, but they are much less common.

Ravens are omnivorous, feeding on practically anything, but the majority of their diet is animal matter including insects, rodents, lizards, frogs, eggs, and the young of other birds. They also regularly eat carrion and garbage.
