CG Raven?

This might not be the right forum. I'm looking for a little advice regarding 3D animation.

In the preproduction stages of a film that has a few scenes in which a raven needs to do a few specific actions. Being that we do not have the time/money to train a raven for these shots, we're looking at the possibility of using a CG raven.

The two main shots are a raven flying up to a window and tapping on it and a raven flying over to a table and picking at some food.

I don't know how hard this is/how much time it would take or what I should pay someone to do this kind of work.

I posted an ad in the 'low paying jobs' forum but then realized that I don't even know how much a job like this would run.

The going rate, as I understand it, for animal actors is around $300 per day.

You would almost spend that on just a model (of a crow)
