Crows vs ravens

As I’m working on this book about ravens, I’ve had several conversations where I’ve explained that no, I’m actually not working on a book about crows. 🙂 Crows being lovely in their own right, but also not frequent visitors to the area where my book is set. (Going by American terminology here; as I understand it, in UK terminology “crow” describes a larger group of black birds that includes ravens.)

I’m still working on telling crows and ravens apart in the wild myself, but I thought this was a pretty good breakdown of the differences:

Well, except for the part where it claims ravens are quieter. Because quiet is … not quite the word I’d use, for some of that krawking.
