The true crows are in the genus Corvus, they are large passerine birds. All temperate continents (except South America) and several offshore and oceanic islands (including Hawaii) have representatives of the 40 or so members of this genus.

Crows in the genus Corvus appear to have evolved in central Asia and radiated out into North America, Africa, Europe, and Australia.

The latest evidence appears to point towards an Australasian origin for the early family (Corvidae) though the branch that would produce the modern groups such as jays, magpies and large predominantly black Corvus Crows had left Australasia and were now developing in Asia. Corvus has since re-entered Australia (relatively recently) and produced five species with one recognised sub-species.

Hi Nobert

Very well done. Great POV. Good colour. Sharpness and clarity are spot on showing good detail. Stands out nice against the OOF BG. Good job. Thanks.

Witaj Norbert,
To jest bardzo dobre. Sliczne kolory, ekspozycja perfekt i bardzo dobra ostrosc. Piora wygladaja super. Jedyne co mi odrobine to nie gra to kadr. Mam wrazenie ze jest troche za duzo przestrzeni nad glowa wrony.
Ale ogolnie wszystko bardzo fajnie!
