They saw a big raven; it glided down the sky, she touched it... though I doubt an Australian Raven is what Björk had in mind when she was just a young Sugarcube.

This post is more art than ornithology. I'm not sure which raven this is. I have seen many very large, Australian Ravens over the years in countryside and in towns, and the small group of ravens in the bushland this morning, of which this is one, were not plus sized like those. So it is possibly a Little Raven but more likely a less well fed, good old garden variety, Australian Raven. You may know it by another name. Crow.

Btw, the fantastic Sugarcubes song quoted above is called Birthday.

  1. It is arty. I only realised recently how difficult the different ravens were.
