Crows, ravens, jays, magpies and nutcrackers comprise the Corvid family, one of the most unique and intelligent groups of birds here in Cascadia. In our ever-popular annual Corvid class, visit Skagit forests, Methow meadows and the passes in between in search of the birds in their various habitats. Together we'll observe corvids’ habits and personalities firsthand and realize our part in the “cultural co-evolution” corvids and humans have long shared.
