|[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note|
|The Pied Crow (Corvus albus) is a widely distributed African bird species in the crow genus.|
Structurally, the Pied Crow is perhaps better thought of as a small crow-sized Raven, especially as it can hybridise with the Somali Crow (Dwarf Raven) where their ranges meet in the Horn of Africa. Its behaviour, though, is more typical of the Eurasian Carrion Crows, and it may perhaps prove to be a modern link (along with the Somali Crow) between the Eurasian crows and the Common Raven.
