  Jackdaw - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Jackdaw (Corvus monedula) is one of the smallest species (34–39 cm in length) in the genus of crows and ravens.
Jackdaws are found over a large area stretching from North West Africa through virtually all of Europe, Iran, north-west India and Siberia, where they inhabit wooded steppes, woodland, cultivated land, pasture, coastal cliffs and villages and towns.
Lorenz put coloured rings on Jackdaws' legs so that individual birds could be easily identified and he caged them in the winter because of their migration from Austria.

 jackdaw
Adult Jackdaws of all three races moult their primaries, secondaries and tail from mid May to mid October (Cramp and Perrins 1994), which means that adult birds in winter are in fresh plumage.
On Jackdaws studied in eastern Finland (Voipio 1969), where the birds are considered to be soemmerringii, 43% of the 1st winter birds showed a faint white collar and just two birds had a white collar as in adult birds (n=46).
A distinctive trend in Scandinavia is that the silvery collar in Nordic Jackdaw gradually darkens towards the west and south-west and the average size as well as the frequency of occurrence gradually decreases until this characteristic entirely disappears in the westernmost race spermologus (Voipio 1969).
