Sorry about not posting another picture of a bird. :oops: :cry:

But I think this bird is a Common Raven (because of the curved tip of the bill)???? :? Just guessing-ish. :(
Orange. Just orange.

Yeah, in the raven the beak is more 'bent', instead of just having a curved tip. The head and neck of the raven are also bulkier than the crow.
