Endemic to the Indian sub-continent, it is found commonly in India, Pakistan, Nepal, Bangladesh, and parts of Maldives, Thailand and Southern Iran.16 inches in length, this bird is slimmer than its cousins. While the forehead, crown and throat are a rich glossy black, the neck, lower body plumage and chest are a lighter grey colour, the rest of the body including the wings, legs and tail is all glossy black. Omnivorous in nature, the crow feeds on fruits, grains, reptiles, invertebrates, human garbage and almost anything else that is edible. An average clutch-size has 3-6 eggs incubated for 16-17 days. Its IUCN listing is the LEAST CONCERN.
