The Ravens of Castlemaine

Today is my last day in Castlemaine, so I thought I’d make this short film to share one of the exciting adventures I went on during my stay. The adventure was up a tree, and the reason was to learn more about the nesting habits of the Little Raven (Corvus mellori). This is one of five species of Corvids, or members of the crow family, which are found in Australia. The nesting habits of each species, including the Australian Raven (Corvus coronoides) which lives near in the Perth area, is very similar to the this one, so hopefully you can learn lots about the corvid near you!

Enjoy the film :-)
