What is the difference between a crow and a raven?

    They are two different types of birds, both in the corvid family, with minor differences in distribution but both found on every continent except South America. Ravens are a bit bigger than crows, with larger, heavier bills, more of a fan-shaped tail, and they sometimes have a ruff, like a mane of feathers, around their neck. Otherwise, the birds are nearly identical and are easy to confuse. Ravens tend to end up in cold, mountainous regions or deserts, while crows seem to be the better fit in temperate mixed habitats. Crows and ravens together comprise about 42 species; some say that there are several species of crow in North America, though many would argue that these are just subspecies.
