    Default Different crows.

    At a water hole near Halali in Etosha this morning, I was hand feeding a couple of crows. One had the usual straight beak and another had a sharp hooked beak like a hawk or eagle. Any idea what the difference is between these crows?

    Sorry, but PLEASE don't feed ANYTHING in a National Park.
    1996 Patrol 4.2SGL with lots of stuff to make it heavier and thus increase traction?

    Without more information possibly one was a Cape Crow (or pied crow if it had a white chest) and the other a Raven.
    If you make a noise or need music in the bush or on the beach, you’re missing the point.

    Thanks OR A. They were identical in all respects that I could tell save that one lot (two or three of them) had a hook at the end of their beaks.
