Aves Noir is an exploration and celebration of all things inspired by that one most clever,Â mysterious, and intriguing of the Feathered Realm – the Corvid.
Across vast matters of subjects these creatures – from Nutcrackers to Ravens – appear, and at the heart of our love for them nests a common culture appreciating the intellectual, macabre, and sombre.
In the center of each piece is a scientific passion for birds that we hope connects like minded connoisseurs to shared interests in the arts, film, dance, couture, andÂ written and entices literary evolution in our readers.
We publish frequently, and focus primarily on the following:Â Art, Photography, Mythology & Literature, Natural History, and Culture.Â While the mythology and allure of crows and ravensÂ are quite popular – we feel that anyone who is drawn to the artistic or mythological appeal of the corvid should go a little deeper and find out more about them, so once per month we feature a different bird. Its a bit of an experiment on bringing science and culture together – a sort of neo-anthropological study which you are invited to pontarticipate in!

If you are fascinated with ravens, crows, jackdaws, or blackbirds, read incessantly about them, observe them in nature, can recognize their unique voice, collect their feathers, collect raven art and artifacts, and know their literature and folklore from around the world, you are probably an inspired CORVIDOLOGIST, which is the branch of Ornithology specializing in these lovely creatures and their family.Â Magically speaking, the Raven is definitely your power animal.
