Continuing my series about the birds seen earlier this month in Fuerteventura,one of the Canary Islands:

The Common Raven (Corvus corax), also known as the Northern Raven, is a large, all-black passerine bird. Found across the northern hemisphere, it is the most widely distributed of all corvids.
C. c. Tingitanus occurs in North Africa and the Canary Islands. It is the smallest subspecies, with the shortest throat hackles and a distinctly oily plumage gloss. Its bill is short but markedly stout, and the culmen is strongly arched. Canary Ravens are browner than the North African Ravens, leading some authorities to treat them as separate subspecies, with the latter maintaining the name C. c. Tingitanus and the former known as C. c. Canariensis.

Le Grand Corbeau (Corvus corax) est une espèce d'oiseaux de la famille des corvidés, le plus grand de l'ordre des passeriformes.
Corvus corax tingitanus est présent en Afrique du Nord et aux îles Canaries. C’est la plus petite sous-espèce avec les plus courtes plumes à la gorge et un plumage lustré caractéristique. Le bec est court mais épais et le culmen est fortement arqué. Avec l’usure, le plumage devient brun foncé sur la tête et le corps.

Wonderful capture! He looks like a character. It's hard to compare his size to our Ravens.
