Figure 1. Distribution of the Chihuahuan Raven.

During the nonbreeding season, some portions of the breeding range may be deserted in some years, and some individuals may disperse to areas just outside of the breeding range in Arizona, New Mexico, Colorado, Kansas, and Texas. Because this species is easily confused with other large corvids, its distribution is imperfectly known, especially in winter.
