When I hear about (and see) such changes I tend to think that natural selection has been a factor, that Ravens more adaptable to being near human activity have had more breeding success and that population simply took off.

Nice piece on the history and resurgence of ravens in the north east. One idea: the West Nile effect on crows helped ravens reestablish territory. Much else, too.

The birds, immortalized by Edgar Allan Poe in his poem “The Raven,” have been observed in recent months in Chelsea and Greenwich Village.
