Yeah, seen it a few times, I think they say that crows are one of the most intelligent birds or something similar O.o

Ravens are crows ^^"
Their both from the same animal species with different names (for example, the orca and killer whale are the same animal species^^).

I think ravens also have blueish feathers, and smaller than crows. But I'm pretty sure they're cousins xD

they are accually pretty different:
Many people use the terms 'raven' and 'crow' interchangeably, but they are actually quite different. Technically, since ravens belong to the crow (corvus) family of birds, they can be called crows - but not all crows are ravens. The two differ in a variety of ways.

Size
First, and most noticeably, ravens are larger than crows. They are (on average) about the size of a hawk, where crows are approximately the size of a pigeon.

Call
If you're familiar with the call which crows make, you'd probably recognize the raven's call as being different. Crows have a more nasal, higher pitched call, where a raven's call is lower, and hoarser... almost a croaking sound. I've frequently been approached by people saying "I heard this really funny-sounding crow the other day..." and when I ask "Was it a really big crow?" the answer has almost invariably been yes. In which case, chances are pretty good that it wasn't a crow at all, but a raven.
Crows have a very fan-shaped tail, where raven's tails have more of a wedge-shape to them. This isn't very easy to tell if the bird is sitting on the ground, but when flying overhead, you can often get a good look at the shape of the tail.
hope this helped the argument lol

Thanks for clearing that up SilkWings. For many years I thought crows and ravens were the same animals but later found out I was wrong. Ravens are in fact larger then crows.

And I find Raven's much more graceful.

In Fire Bringer and a book called Runt, the wolves both mistake a Raven for a crow, and the Raven gets offended. :3
Can't blame them.
