The Hooded Crow and Carrion Crow were considered to be the
same species until 2002 when the Hooded Crow was elevated
to full species status. However, see Hooded x Carrion hybrid. Except for the head, throat, wings, tail and thigh feathers,
which are black and mostly glossy, the plumage is ash-grey,
the dark shafts giving it a streaky appearance. The bill
and legs are black; the iris is dark brown.
