The raven was adopted as the Yukon's official bird in 1985 and can be seen throughout the territory. 

The raven is a significant figure in several Yukon First Nations cultures and is the subject of many stories passed from generation to generation in the territory.

Ravens are very intelligent and can mimic sounds from their environment. They're opportunistic feeders, feasting on everything from carrion to groceries left in the back of pick-up trucks.
