Crowing about it

Hooded Crows that are common further north in the UK have had a chequered history with regards to their status as a species. They have shuttlecocked between sub species and full species for some years. They are currently regarded as a full species.

We encountered several on our Mull trip in early May. This particular individual was scouring the beach for a tasty morsel among the seaweed.

    So it’s not a subspecies of the Carrion Crow any more? Do you know for what reason the ornithologist changed their mind (again)? Thanks. Kind regards Thomas
