Results from banding Little Ravens

Banding of Little Ravens Corvus mellori has been carried out on the Mount Mary Plains, South Australia, as part of an Area Survey.  Although the species is generally nomadic, breeding pairs do not appear to wander great distances.  Some locally-bred birds either remain in, or return to, the region in which they were reared.  Information is given on trapping procedures and the reaction of Little Ravens to sheep carcases used for bait when there is abundant other food available nearby.  Some aberrant individuals with white feather-bases could possibly be mistaken for the Little Crow C. bennetti.
