Bug Girl Jun 06, 2017 12:01 PM Crow vs Hawk: A Battle in the Sky That's a crow. There are a few ravens in the Santa Ynez Valley, but you'll be hard pressed to see any ravens in the SB area. Crows have a shorter wingspan and shorter beak. Crows have wedge shaped tails, ravens have more angled wings, a larger wingspan, larger beak, and a more 'diamond' shaped tail. Crows have 5 noticeable 'fingers' of distinct wing feathers in profile, ravens have 4. Their voices are very distinctively different as well. Ravens are usually only seen in pairs, and crows, as we all know, fly in larger numbers.
