Large-billed, Eastern Jungle or Indian Jungle Crow [excl. philippinus]

Corvus [macrorhynchos, levaillantii or culminatus, excl. philippinus] (= Corvus macrorhynchos) Wagler, JG 1827

The large-billed crow, formerly referred to widely as the jungle crow, is a widespread Asian species of crow. It is very adaptable and is able to survive on a wide range of food sources, making it capable of colonizing new areas, due to which it is often considered a nuisance, especially on islands. It has a large bill, which is the source of its scientific name macrorhynchos and it is sometimes known by the common name thick-billed crow. It can also be mistaken for a common raven. Johann Georg Wagler first described the species from a holotype obtained from Java in the year 1827. The eastern jungle crow and Indian jungle crow were once considered conspecific and together called the jungle crow. Source: Wikipedia
