Il corvo imperiale Corvus corax  nidifca di nuovo in Umbria

Magrini M., Armentano L., Gambaro C.



Abstract:

The Raven Corvus corax became extinct in Umbria (Central Italy) about 1970. Since 2006 the authors found evidence of territorial and breeding activity of Ravens in a mountain area of the region in which the species has certainly been absent in the last decades. Two or three pairs of the species currently live in the area. After 35 years the Raven has to be considered again a breeding species in Umbria.
