Introducing #TrickOrTweet Tuesday! Every week in the month of October we will be sharing some spooky trivia. One bird associated with Halloween is the Common Raven. But how do you tell the difference between a Raven and a Crow? Ravens are significantly larger, and their tails are wedge-shaped in flight. Crows vocalize the stereotypical "caw" call while Ravens produce a lower croaking sound.
