Tower of London Ravens

The Tower of London ravens (see below) are Common Ravens which live in the Tower of London. There are always at least seven individual birds with one of those acting as a reserve. Tradition suggests that the presence of the ravens protects the Crown and the Tower, and a superstition suggests that if the Tower of London ravens are lost or fly away, then the Crown will fall and Britain with it.
