 Carrion Crow - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Carrion Crow (Corvus corone) can be distinguished from the Common Raven by its size (48–52 cm in length) and from the Hooded Crow by its fl plumage, but there is frequent confusion between it and the Rook.
The beak of the Crow is stouter and in consequence looks shorter, and whereas in the adult Rook the nostrils are bare, those of the Crow are covered at all ages with bristle-like feathers.
The plumage of Carrion Crow is fl with a green or purple sheen, but the gloss is much greener than that of the Rook.

 Carrion Beetles in Yellowstone NP: Introduction   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-21)
Although small vertebrate species must contribute a significant percentage of total vertebrate carrion input into a system (perhaps the majority, depending on the ecosystem), the focus of this study on larger vertebrate species argues for a general limitation of the discussion to sources of large vertebrate carrion.
Another large vertebrate, carrion ecology investigation conducted in the Nearctic region was a short-term observational study of the arthropods associated with harbor seal carcasses located within the intertidal zone along the north eastern coast of the United States (Lord and Berger 1984).
Unlike terrestrial carrion ecology research, which is primarily anecdotal, their findings were discussed within the perspective of the entire benthic ecosystem, speculating what influences such whale carcasses might have had on the evolution, distributions, and abundances of deep-sea species.

 Stinking Flowers
Carrion flowers are masters in the art of deception because they lure these insects into their blossoms.
The overpowering stench of some carrion flowers may be caused (in part) by putrescine (1,4-butanediamine) and cadaverine (1,5-pentanediamine), relatively simple amine compounds derived from the amino acids ornithine and lysine.
The identical antennal responses to arum and carcass odors indicate that a carrion fly cannot rely on odors alone to separate the model (decaying meat) from the olfactory mimic (arum inflorecence).

 Carrion Crow, Corvus corone corone
Of all birds the carrion crow is the most detested by gamekeepers and country people who rear flocks of poultry, because it is the craftiest of egg thieves.
They tend to hunt in ones and twos, unlike rooks which go about in flocks; but I have seen as many as 40 carrion crows in a bunch in early summer; these were all young birds which had assembled from several nests, to travel round in a gang, as is the way of adolescents.
In much of Ireland and Scotland, our carrion crow is replaced by the grey-and-fl hooded crow; in the border zones, the two species inter-breed.

 WDNR - Giant Carrion Beetle (American Burying Beetle)
Habitat: The giant carrion beetle was originally found across 35 states in landscapes of various soil types in mowed and grazed fields, prairie, dense shrub thickets and deciduous forest.
Carrion availability in a given area rather than habitat is probably the greatest limiting factor.
Contributing factors probably include the need for carrion the size of doves or chipmunks (loss of the passenger pigeon has been mentioned), fragmentation of habitat affecting prey species, and creation of edge supporting competitive vertebrate scavengers.

 DarkEcho Review: Kissing Carrion by Gemma Files
Overall Files relies a little too often on first person and occasionally stoops to cute tricks ("The Diarist," "Folly," "Job 37") but still manages to pull her story off well.
My only disappointment was with the eponymous "Kissing Carrion," which would have been improved with more of her usual care and her knack for restraint.
Files' wounds tend to fester rather than heal cleanly, so her stories will not be to everyone's taste.
