True to its name, the thick-billed raven (Corvus crassirostris) has an impressively large bill that is narrow and deeply curved, with a white tip – giving the bird a very distinctive appearance. It shares with the common raven the distinction of being the largest bird in the corvid family. They’re found throughout the Horn of Africa, usually in mountains and high plateaus. There, they nest in trees and on cliffs, feeding on everything from wheat and grubs to carrion, scraps of human food, and even beetle larvae from animal dung. It is endemic to Ethiopia, Eritrea, and Somalia.
