Bird Families of the World

Pied Crow

Crows, Jays and Magpies are part of the family which includes some of the most familiar birds in the world. Ravens and crows figure in the mythologies of many peoples worldwide, and they are well known for their sociality and intelligence. Dismissed often as common familiar black birds, corvids include some stunningly beautiful birds; some of the magpies and treepies are among the most elegant and graceful of all the world’s birds.

The family is Corvidae

There are 129 species placed in 23 genera.

So far I have photographed 34 different species.
