Help Irvine Name our NEW Raven

HELP IRVINE NAME OUR NEWEST ANIMAL AMBASSADOR:  A Common RAVEN

Meet the newest addition to Irvine’s Animal Ambassador family! The Common Raven, Corvus corax, is an extremely intelligent omnivore, known for acrobatic flights and the capacity to solve puzzles.

This handsome bird recently arrived at Irvine after receiving wonderful respite care at Frisky’s Wildlife Sanctuary following an injury in the wild. It was first brought to Chadwell Animal Hospital, underweight with a severely fractured left wing and damaged feathers. The humeral fracture healed leaving a large callous, making flight difficult. It will now call Owings Mills its forever home, alongside Irvine’s other Avian Ambassadors, receiving excellent care and enrichment, while serving as a teaching tool for students of all ages.

While not a rare bird, this creature is so unique, as it is already demonstrating its smarts by recognizing its handlers by sound and sight, and by “stashing” food in various places around its mew. In the wild the Common Raven lives 10-15 years, and in captivity it can live up to 50!
