I usually spot these birds from a distance. Their most telling feature is that unlike common crows who forage in twos and threes, this bird seems to be a loner. I have never spied one foraging near ANY other bird, even other ravens. We have one at work that we have nick-named Forest. He (she?) will not let anyone approach to closely, but is not easily scared away.

I've been fascinated by these birds every since I noted that they were standing on metal street lights in Fairbanks when it was well below zero (as in -50). I still don't understand that.
