The Large-billed Crow (Corvus macrorhynchos ) 48 - 59 cm

The Large-billed Crow are sub-montane to montane birds as opposed to it's distant cousin the lowland crow. It does not have the huge numbers that we see of the lowland crows. Another difference between the two is that the large-billed is not a scavenger. It hunts for it's food which consists of insects, lizards, frogs and other reptiles and small mammals.

It's habitat are open forest, woodland, mangrove. Could be found in forest habitat of up to 3600 meters above sea level.
