An investigation of nest predation and associated foraging behaviors by resident Common Ravens (Corvus corax) indicated that occupation of heronries, predation of Great Egret (Ardea alba) nests, duration of patrol flights, landing rates, and number of interactions with ardeids varied with the productivity of resident ravens. Annual increases in raven predatory behaviors were consistent with increases in foraging experience for a few to several years after ravens became resident at colony sites.
