Found throughout the world, ravens prefer to congregate in open landscapes. The bird particularly enjoys seacoasts, plains, deserts, and the treeless tundra of the far north. Since they are an adaptable and hearty species, ravens also live in heavily wooded areas. Unlike crows, who prefer urban areas, ravens fair better in wilder habitats and construct nests on cliff sides and in tall trees. Despite their preferences, ravens can establish nests in cities and suburbs, as well.
