JUNGLE CROW (Corvus macrorhynchos)
By looking at how well adapted the ‘Jungle’ crow is to living in cities, perhaps a name change might be in order? This crow has a large bill – which is curved – for its size. It is common and has an omnivorous diet, but also scavenges in garbage, which may turn it into a nuisance. Its call (which can be heard in some of the videos below) has a lower pitch and a slower rhythm than that of its American cousin, which makes it less annoying. Like other corvidae, it is a resourceful bird. The jungle crow will gather in large groups to roost for the night.
