Corvus and its neighbour Crater are ancient constellations despite their relative anonymity these days.
The two constellations are found between -- and south of -- Leo and Virgo, inside a large loop of the Hydra.
To find Corvus with the naked-eye move four fields of view west-southwest of Spica; you'll encounter delta. To verify you are there, this is the binocular view. Now move south-southwest a little over one field to find alpha.
Corvus has several interesting objects for binoculars or small telescopes.
