Caramel Crow he&#039;s even got a name (given by a crow researcher)- wait for it... Ferdinand ;p<br />

She&#039;s asked that his exact location be protected, so I&#039;ll just tag this one USA<br />

Brown crows are uncommon, certainly less common than partially leusistic ones, and science is actually unsure of what causes this coloration. The non-conformity does not appear to affect their situation in crow society - unlike albino crows, who tend to be rejected, they mate and raise young normally. It would also seem to not be a dominant trait, as known offspring of caramel crows have been seen to be normally colored. Corvus caurinus,FoundFerdinand,Northwestern crow Click/tap to enlarge

  1. Ferdinand de Mier (the ant, a cartoon) was how kids used to make fun of my name in elementary school :(
    Right before they met the physical implication of doing so :)

The northwestern crow is an all-black passerine bird of the crow genus native to the northwest of North America. It is very similar to the more western forms of the widespread American crow , but it averages slightly smaller with proportionately smaller feet and a slightly more slender bill. This taxon is reliably identified by range only.
