  Crow - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Crows in the northwestern U.S. (a blend of Corvus brachyrhynchos and Corvus caurinus) show modest linguistic capabilities and the ability to relay information over great distances, live in complex, hierarchic societies involving hundreds of individuals with various "occupations", and have an intense rivalry with the area's less socially advanced ravens.
Crows, and especially ravens, often feature in legends or mythology as portents or harbingers of doom or death, because of their dark plumage, unnerving calls, and tendency to eat carrion.
In mythology and folklore as a whole, crows tend to be symbolic more of the spiritual aspect of death, or the transition of the spirit into the afterlife, whereas ravens tend more often to be associated with the negative (physical) aspect of death.

 Crows and Ravens
The bases of the feathers of the crows are white, while those of the ravens are grey, although this characteristic is perhaps only of benefit if birds are held in the hand or if discarded feathers are found.
Crows and ravens are found throughout Australia, in all habitat types, with the exception of the more arid areas of Western Australia.
One concern with the possible establishment of the House Crow in Australia, is its record as a pest of crops.

 Little Crow - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Little Crow (Corvus bennetti) is an Australian species of crow, very similar to the Torresian Crow in having white bases to the neck and head feathers (shown when ruffled in strong wind) but slightly smaller (42-48 cm in length) and with a proportionately smaller bill.
It has the same white iris that distinguish the Australian species from all other Corvus except a few island species to the north of Australia, and one from Eurasia, the Jackdaw (Corvus monedula).
Like the Australian Raven, this species usually has a blue ring around the pupil and sometimes one around the very outer edge of the white iris too.

 Walkabout - Crows Nest
Crows Nest is a genuinely unusual Australian rural town, built around a large and attractive village green.
In the centre of the village green is the statue of Jimmy Crow, after whom the town was named, and nearby is the tree which was his 'nest'.
To the east of Crows Nest is the excellent Crows Nest National Park, 489 hectares of rugged country on the edge of the Great Dividing Range which includes the dramatic Crows Nest Falls and a deep rainforest gorge in an area characterised by open eucalypt forest.

 Torresian Crow - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Torresian Crow (Corvus orru), also occasionally called the Australian Crow, is about the same size (50-55 cm in length) as the Eurasian Carrion Crow but with a more robust bill and slightly longer legs.
It has the typical white iris of the other Australasian Corvus species but can be distinguished from most (except the Little Crow) by the base of the head and neck feathers being snow white (revealed when blown by a strong wind).
Its range occupies the tropical north of Australia as far south as Brisbane on the east coast where the species seems to be adjusting well to a city life.

Crows have (a) white bases to neck feathers visible when ruffled by wind; (b) short hackles on neck (raised when calling in Torresian); (c) nasal quality to most-often-heard calls; (d) mostly western and northern in range.
Best for diagnostic purposes is territorial call, uttered with throat hackles fanned from prominent perches by Forest, Australian and Torresian, and uttered with throat hackles unfanned from variety of perches (including ground) by Little Raven and Little Crow: Forest: rich, deep, slow 'korr-korr-korr-korrrr', last note often drawn out.
Other characteristics (a) 'Currawong flight' or 'missing a beat': performed in flight by both crows, wings closed for space of one beat, calling at same time; performed by Torresian with single call-note and with throat hackles extended, less commonly by Little Crow, with double note.

The first time a species is seen it is displayed in bold and where a 'C' appears next to a species, this indicates that it was commonly seen on that date.
Walk on the pavement directly under these trees (usually full of egrets and Australian Ibises) and look into the canopy where I discovered at least one Nankeen Night Heron on this date and at least six birds on the morning of 25th July.
With temperatures averaging 42ºC, birding was extremely tiresome and often difficult - each time one left the hotel and its cool air conditioning, entering the sweltering heat meant an immediate mist on my optics for the first 10 minutes or so until the optics became acclimatized to the outside air temperature.

 The Raven's Aviary - Corvidae Sounds
The raucous call of the crow is familiar to everyone who has spent any time in their vicinity.
In addition to their harsh calls and occassional jaded shrieks, most corvids have a repertoire of chirps, rattles, and other odd noises which are less frequently associated with them.
Crows and ravens are also great copycats, and have been known to to imitate noises made by other birds - or dogs, cats, humans, and even alarm clocks.

A more radical alternative is that the Siberians were preceded by migrants from Oceania, who arrived either by sailing across the Pacific Ocean or by following the Land route through Beringia at a much earlier date.
Proponents of this Theory claim that the oldest human remains in South America and in Baja California show distinctive non-Siberian traits, resembling those of Australian Aborigines or the Negritos of the Andaman Islands.
These hypothetical American Aborigines would have been displaced by the Siberian migrants, and may have been ancestral to the distinctive Native Americans of the Tierra del Fuego, who are nearly extinct.
