Flowers and Birds

 The view from my front window.

Yesterday I visited my mother's house that overlooks a pond. She had spoken about the heron that sits on the rocks. As I gazed across from the garden I was lucky enough to see the heron take flight with a raven in hot pursuit. As they circled overhead I admired the wingspan and the trailing legs of the heron. Telling my mother about it she said, 'Oh yes those ravens are a pest. They see off all the other birds.'
Question: Are ravens and rooks the same bird?
