Juvenile Raven?

Recommended Posts

Is this raven a juvenile? It seems to have those little mouth extenders at the sides of its beak:

What's your location? If you are not too far north, then I agree. If not we have to consider other possibilities.

Is that bump on the beak normal? I know it's usually fully covered by feathers and thick billed but that looks like a lump almost?

I think it's just a bit early for a fully fledged juvie at your lattitude. I haven't even noticed any here in San Diego yet.

What would explain the pink corners of the beak? Just asking for my knowledge.

So I checked the Pennsylvania bird breeding atlas.  Apparently Common Raven is an early nester there.  So we can all agree this one is a juvenile.
