APPEARANCE

Similar in appearance to their cousins, the crow, ravens are large and completely black birds. They have shaggy throats and breast feathers, as well as pointed tails. In the sky, ravens are capable of aerial acrobatics and can even fly upside down for long distances. While foraging for food on the ground, the birds tend to strut or hop about.

DIET

As opportunistic omnivores, ravens are known for eating almost anything from carrion and small mammals to pet food and garbage. In the wild, they commonly eat plant matter, such as seeds and fruits, as well as insects and animals like snails, lizards, and dead creatures.

HABITAT

Common sights throughout the Western United States, ravens are capable of making their homes in almost any environment. They live on coasts, in forests, mountain ranges, grasslands, tundra, farm fields, rural towns, and even major cities. Ravens are one of the few species of songbirds that enter into monogamous mating relationships for life. Mated pairs build large nests together in the crooks of trees and will aggressively defend their nesting sites from other birds, animals, and humans that approach.

TREATMENT SOLUTIONS

ENTRY INTO HOMES OR BUSINESSES

ENTRY INTO HOMES OR BUSINESSES

Backyards, agricultural fields, public parks, and even busy city streets with readily available food sources entice ravens. Unsecured garbage, unprotected crops, livestock carcasses, and even birdfeeders provide easy access to food and encourage ravens to roost nearby. While it is unlikely for the birds to enter houses, the clever creatures find ways to unzip tents, enter unlocked cars, and open containers to get to food.

PROBLEMS & DAMAGE

PROBLEMS & DAMAGE

Agricultural crops and livestock may suffer damage from ravens, although the birds are solitary and don’t usually cause as much harm as flocks of other songbirds. Ravens can attack and devour newborn animals, such as lambs and calves, and aggressively protect their nests. Their droppings also cause problems by destroying equipment, fouling walkways and water sources, and spreading disease to humans and other animals.

PREVENTION & EXCLUSION

PREVENTION & EXCLUSION

Since ravens are intelligent, it can take a lot of effort to control their populations. Individuals should take caution when approaching nests, as the beaks and talons of the large birds are sharp and powerful. Hanging effigies, placing scarecrows, and using propane exploders or pyrotechnics where legally available can be effective means of short-term population control, but ravens quickly learn that these distractions are not actually harmful. A more effective way to discourage ravens from encroaching on private properties is to remove potential food sources and roosting sites.

TRAPPING & REMOVAL

TRAPPING & REMOVAL

Ravens should not be handled by the general public. Those seeking trapping and removal options should contact wildlife removal experts who are trained to address problematic birds. Trutech technicians handle populations of ravens humanely and act within the confines of state and federal regulations.
