Ravens are a common species of large black birds of the genus Corvus. Ravens can be domesticated and kept as pets by both the Muggle and the wizarding community, however, they are much more common in the latter. Ravens can be purchased at the wizarding pet shop, Magical Menagerie.

In 1993, some of the members of the Frog Choir held ravens while performing the song "Something Wicked This Way Comes."

In 1995, Filius Flitwick's fifth year Charms students practised the Silencing Charm on ravens. Ronald Weasley's attempt at the charm had no effect on his "large and ugly raven," but Hermione Granger was successful at Silencing it.
