We see Ravens throughout the north Olympic Peninsula, from the highest ridges to sea level. They fly over our house, at about 2,000 feet elevation in the Heart O' the Hills Area, Olympic National Park, Washington, and roost in our trees. In the mountains, we often see them in small groups circling high overhead, and descending to feed. They are much larger than crows, with a wingspan more than 4 feet, a heavier bill and sometimes obvious neck ruffs. Their calls are varied, but always loud.
