The house crow

Corvus splendens


It is between the jackdaw and the carrion crow in size (40 cm (16 in) in length) but is slimmer than either. The forehead, crown, throat and upper breast are a richly glossed black, whilst the neck and breast are a lighter grey-brown in colour. The wings, tail and legs are black. There are regional variations in the thickness of the bill and the depth of colour in areas of the plumage.


of Asian origin but now found in many parts of the world, where they arrived assisted by shipping


Their expressions, that seemed to show intelligence, attracted my attention
