"Dare To Be Different" (Rare White Raven) by 


The image features a photograph of a real White Raven (also known as a “Spirit Raven” by local Haida people) born in May, 2008 on Vancouver Island, B.C., Canada. He is one of two rare white and 3 black Ravens hatched to 2 accepting (black) parents. The two rare birds are not albino, but leucystics which is what makes them so unusual. Their eyes are quite blue. All 5 siblings are getting along extremely well and all are thriving.

White Ravens are very rare and hold sacred meaning for many groups and cultures throughout the World, including Native American Indian, Celtic, Norse and Wiccans. This artwork is another tribute to these remarkably intelligent and friendly birds. 25% royalties from all sales go to the Defenders of Wildlife at www.defenders.org.

    Hello my Friend, you’re most welcome. :o-) They are so entertaining to view (Black or White Ravens). We so enjoyed capturing their antics on video as well as via our Olympus eVolt cameras. The 5 sibliings flew upwards spontaneously, far above us and played “dogfights” for over 40 mins right after this photo was taken. The two whites were every bit as talented as fliers and leaders as their 3 siblings. We followed their progress for a few months after we discovered them (by hearing about them on the local news). It was a life-changing experience to see them on each visit we made there. They are so intelligent and full of personality. :o-)

    huninn and muninn .. odin’s two spirit birds .. thought and memory … (smile)

    look what I found …

    Three rare white ravens rescued from death’s clutch

    the article suggests those three were rejected by their clan and also there is something wrong with their genes .. hmmpf .. could be but I wouldn’t call it wrong .. and as for the clan rejecting them .. my first thought was that there must be more pressures on survival in their neighborhood than on Vancouver Island …

  • I think the Norse Gods would have approved of these two large Spirit Ravens :o-)

    ps I think the wildlife manager there really doesn’t know her birds …. she stated that she believed they were attacked by other crows …. they cousins but ravens are not crows …
