Northwestern Crow - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Northwestern Crow (Corvus caurinus) is native to the northwest of North America. It is very similar to the more western forms of the widespread American Crow (Corvus brachyrhynchos) but it is smaller with a smaller bill.

The Australian raven (Corvus coronoides) is a passerine bird in the crow family native to much of southern and northeastern Australia.
