The raven was adopted as Yukon's official bird in 1985 and can be seen throughout Yukon. Ravens are very intelligent and can mimic sounds from their environment. They are opportunistic feeders, feasting on everything from carrion to groceries left in the back of pick-up trucks.

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.
