Recent split from Large-billed Crow - Corvus macrorhynchos, now it is considered as a separate species Indian Jungle Crow - Corvus culminatus occuring in Himalayan foothills. Higher up in mountains it is replaced by the Large-billed Crow

Sorry, Pavel for a long time silence. Regarding culminatus taxon, first, not all of Authorities regognize this taxon as a full species (avibase), second, in case I split Large-billed Crow to three independed species users and visitors of this website will have question how to id birds which they take photos not in th centers of breeding range of each of taxons? In which altitude in Himalayas culminatus bordered macrorhynchos? Are they hybridized? How to rgognize hybrids? More and less size of bill and little difference in body-shape are not viewable in indibidual birds, but only in populations, so absolutely impossible to id birds from border areas. This website was made for photographers not for genetic researchers, so it's a reason to keep Large-billed Crow as one species. But, of course I recognize culminatus as taxon, so if you want I can add culminatus as subspecies to Large-billed Crow.
