The common raven is a large all-black passerine bird. It is the most widely distributed of all corvids, found across the Northern Hemisphere. It is a raven known by many names at the subspecies level; there are at least eight subspecies with little variation in appearance, although recent research has demonstrated significant genetic differences among populations from various regions. It is one of the two largest corvids, alongside the thick-billed raven, and is possibly the heaviest passerine bird; at maturity, the common raven averages 63 centimetres in length and 1.2 kilograms in mass. Although their typical lifespan is considerably shorter, common ravens can live more than 23 years in the wild. Young birds may travel in flocks but later mate for life, with each mated pair defending a territory.
2. Friedrich von Saarwerden
Frederick of Saarwerden was Archbishop of Cologne from 1370 to 1414 as Frederick III. Through the encouragement of his great-uncle, the Archbishop of Trier Kuno II von Falkenstein, Friedrich von Saarwerden was elected Archbishop of Cologne at the age of 20, which the Pope confirmed in Avignon two years later after some misgivings. Frederick found the archbishopric completely plundered by his two predecessors in the March, Adolf and Engelbert, and had even assured high payments to the curia on the occasion of his election. Nevertheless, with the help of his very rich great-uncle Kuno, he managed to relieve the archbishopric of debt in a few years.
The common buzzard is a medium-to-large bird of prey which has a large range. A member of the genus Buteo, it is a member of the family Accipitridae. The species lives in most of Europe and extends its breeding range across much of the Palearctic as far as northwestern China, far western Siberia and northwestern Mongolia. Over much of its range, it is a year-round resident. However, buzzards from the colder parts of the Northern Hemisphere as well as those that breed in the eastern part of their range typically migrate south for the northern winter, many journeying as far as South Africa.
A bartizan, also called a guerite, garita, or échauguette, or spelled bartisan, is an overhanging, wall-mounted turret projecting from the walls of late medieval and early-modern fortifications from the early 14th century up to the 18th century. Most frequently found at corners, they protected a warder and enabled him to see his surroundings. Bartizans generally are furnished with oillets or arrow slits. The turret was usually supported by stepped masonry corbels and could be round, polygonal or square.
Friedestrom Castle, formerly often called Friedestrom Castle, is a former castle in the Dormagen district of Zons. The former moated castle is located on the left bank of the Rhine and was intended, among other things, to secure the Rhine toll levied in Zons. It therefore belongs to the type of customs castle. Furthermore, she was responsible for securing the territory of the Electorate of Cologne against the Counts and later Dukes of Berg.
The Anatidae are the biological family of water birds that includes ducks, geese, and swans. The family has a cosmopolitan distribution, occurring on all the world's continents except Antarctica. These birds are adapted for swimming, floating on the water surface, and in some cases diving in at least shallow water. The family contains around 174 species in 43 genera.
The red junglefowl is a tropical bird in the family Phasianidae. It ranges across much of Southeast Asia and parts of South Asia. It was formerly known as the bankiva or bankiva fowl. It is the species that gave rise to the chicken ; the grey junglefowl, Sri Lankan junglefowl and green junglefowl have also contributed genetic material to the gene pool of the chicken.
The White Polled Heath is a small breed and landrace of North German sheep and belongs to the Heidschnucke family, part of the Northern European short-tailed sheep group. However, unlike the other Heidschnucke types, it is entirely white and polled (hornless).
