The, essentially correct, wisdom that California's Ravens are more birds

Just a note on this topic:

A friend of mine who lives in Half Moon Bay, San Mateo County and I often
exchange birding visits to each other's home county. Between Half Moon Bay
and Santa Cruz, the land is nearly all agricultural. An American Crow found
along this stretch of coast is quite a rarity, but Northern Ravens are
common.
