Corvus corax sinuatus


It is a large bird that was posing and not scared of humans.It is a black large bird like a crow.The bird has black eyes that look like Mako shark eyes that are also black.The bird was sitting on rainbow point that was about 9000 feet high with a nice background of Bryce canyon.The common raven is listed least concern on IUCN and is mostly common in mountain ranges and canyons like in Utah and Arizona.The bird was very large it was almost the size of a hawk and its claw was like a prehistoric animal,probably because it was a old raven about 10-12 years old.
