What a difference one letter makes! Take a closer look at Corvids, the highly intelligent and inquisitive family of birds that includes over 120 species, including crows, ravens, magpies and blue jays. Birding expert Aaron Steed sifts through confusion, sets aside stereotypes and stirs our curiosity with information on the birds that hold important roles in myths across cultures and in our ecosystems. If you love oaks and pines in our Southern Appalachian forests, then you've got to love Corvidae, ecosystem engineers extraordinaire!


Aaron Steed has been interested in birds and natural history his entire life. Originally from Wilmington, N.C., Aaron holds a B.S. in General Biology from the University of North Carolina at Asheville and has worked numerous ornithological field positions in North Carolina, Texas, Kansas, California and Arizona, focusing primarily on endangered or imperiled species (such as the Black-capped Vireo and Lesser Prairie-Chicken). He currently leads classes in the field and online for Ventures Birding Tours and for the Arboretum.
