Is that a crow or a raven?

Pretty sure it is a Crow...I've seen Ravens,and they are much larger....Comparisons...Physical Differences: Crows average around 17 inches long, and ravens about 24-27. (The one I shot was 16" long...)A raven weighs about four times that of a crow. Crows have a wing span around 2.5 ft., and ravens about 3.5-4 ft. A raven's wing sometimes makes a prominent "swish, swish" sound, while a crow's wingbeat is usually silient.Ravens have pointed wings, while crows have a more blunt and splayed wing tip. Crows have a fan-shaped tail (squared-off), while raven tails are long and wege-shaped. Besides having a bigger, more powerful bill, a raven's bill is curved, while a crow has a more-or-less flat bill. Additionally, atop a raven's bill is a tuft of hairs absent on crows.
