A raven.

A raven is a big, black bird. It is similar to a crow but is a little different. The raven's feathers are all black, but a crow has feathers that are white at the bottom. These cannot be seen from a distance.

The most famous raven is in the Edgar Allen Poe story called "The Raven".

The common raven can be easily tamed, but is mischievous and sly, and has been well known regarded as a bird of evil and mysterious character.[1]
