Nectar from plants is a particularly important food source for a number of bird families. Here, 4 observations of nectar foraging by family groups of Little Ravens (Corvus mellori), a species only recently recorded as consuming nectar, are described. There are few details of nectarivory in the major reviews of the Corvidae, but this behavior has been recorded for 11 of the approximately 45 species of Corvus worldwide and is summarized here.
