A whimsical look at the behavior of the Common Raven—Corvus corax, through art and science. I built learning modules that explored the complete natural history of the common raven, answering questions such as: What do ravens eat? Do scientists think ravens play

The first Corvid Cam features a loop of photos of real ravens. My 3 foot square raven board game, Cache, anchors the Raven Games area which discusses the question "Do ravens play?" The giant board game requires players to think like ravens—share, be a little tricky...and to be very smart. Kids move giant game pieces I crafted from old Japanese wood floats and carved foam.
