Station of the Raven I: Home Sweet Home
Home Sweet Home
In Southeast Alaska, we are used to seeing ravens soaring in the thermals of tall mountains, making a Cheeto® fly-by at a community beach, or scavenging at the harbor dumpster. But the range of this bird stretches far beyond our coastal neighborhood.
The raven is found on ice floes north of the Arctic Circle to as far south as the mountains of Nicaragua in Central America. Ravens thrive in forests and near the coastline as well as urban areas. The adaptable Corvus corax even makes a home in hot desert environs.
