Not so sure about the corvid.

The bird of prey is a Peregrine but I'm not so sure that the crow is a Raven. The largest female Peregrines barely reach the size of the smallest Ravens, Carrion Crows on the otherhand overlap in size with Peregrines. It may be due to the angle of the photos but the crow shown here appears very similar in size to the falcon.
