What is it?


(Mancos, Colorado)

The huge black bird was standing on the ground, in my back yard, it was at least 3 feet tall with a long 1 foot long black beak. A crow was also with it, but it was too big to be a crow and it's beak was way too long to be a crow. What is it? Sorry I did not get a picture. I have bird feeders but it was too big, it ate the cat food.

My guess initially was a Raven. They are 2 feet long and have a large beak. But not a one foot beak. Maybe our readers have some ideas.
