There is considerable birdlife in Corsica. One famous example is the bearded vulture. In some cases Corsica is a delimited part of the species range. For example, the subspecies of hooded crow, "
" ssp "cornix" occurs in Corsica, but no further south.
The Mesopotamian crow ("
capellanus"), also known as the Iraq pied crow, is a bird species of the Corvus genus. The Mesopotamian crow is native to the region of Mesopotamia, in southern Iraq and southwest Iran, between the Tigris and Euphrates rivers.
Natural hybridisation presents a challenge to the concept of a reproductively isolated species, as fertile hybrids permit gene flow between two populations. For example, the carrion crow "Corvus corone" and the hooded crow "
" appear and are classified as separate species, yet they hybridise freely where their geographical ranges overlap.
Tharthar lake is considered the main wintering grounds for many threatened species of migrant birds such as saker falcon, MacQueen's bustard, and sociable lapwing. 54 bird species were seen in Tharthar lake including: pallid harrier, European roller, and black-tailed godwit (all near threatened) were recorded on passage and the endemic race of hooded crow ["
capellanus"] was present.
Sicily has a good variety of fauna. Species include fox, least weasel, pine marten, roe deer, wild boar, crested porcupine, hedgehog, common toad, "Vipera aspis", golden eagle, peregrine falcon, hoopoe and black-winged stilt. Sicily is an important habitat for the survival of several species, an example being the subspecies of hooded crow "
" which is only found in Sicily, Sardinia and Corsica.
The Yenisei River valley is habitat for numerous flora and fauna, with Siberian pine and Siberian larch being notable tree species. In prehistoric times Scots pine, "Pinus sylvestris", was abundant in the Yenisei River valley circa 6000 BC. There are also numerous bird species present in the watershed, including, for example, the hooded crow, "
The hooded crow was one of the many species originally described by Linnaeus in his 18th-century work "Systema Naturae" and it bears its original name of "
". The binomial name is derived from the Latin words "Corvus", "raven", and "cornix", "crow". It was subsequently considered a subspecies of the carrion crow for many years, hence known as "Corvus corone cornix", due to similarities in structure and habits.
Sardinia has four endemic subspecies of birds found nowhere else in the world: its great spotted woodpecker (ssp "harterti"), great tit (ssp "ecki"), common chaffinch (ssp "sarda"), and Eurasian jay (ssp "ichnusae"). It also shares a further 10 endemic subspecies of bird with Corsica. In some cases Sardinia is a delimited part of the species range. For example, the subspecies of hooded crow, "
" ssp "cornix" occurs in Sardinia and Corsica, but no further south.
USUV's host range includes primarily "Culex" mosquitoes, birds, and humans. A 2008-2009 survey of mosquitoes and birds in Emilia-Romagna detected USUV in 89 "Culex pipiens" pools and in 2 "Aedes albopictus" pools. Twelve wild birds, primarily European Magpies ("Pica pica"), Hooded Crows ("
"), and Eurasian Jays ("Garrulus glandarius"), were determined to be USUV-positive. USUV detection in mosquito species confirms the role of "Culex pipiens" as the main vector and the possible involvement of "Aedes albopictus" in the virus cycle.
Unlike scarce aquatic organisms, Sawa lake rich with birds,25 spices of resident and immigrant birds were observed in Sawa Lake and the surrounding areas. the lake held large numbers of waterfowl, mainly ducks and coot ("Fulica atra"). The endemic race of little grebe ("Tachybaptus ruficollis iraquensis") and the Mesopotamian crow ("
capellanus") occur, as well as the near-endemic grey hypocolius. Locals and hunters reported the frequent occurrence of “different kinds of raptors” especially in spring and autumn, so the site may be important as a staging area.
The hooded crow ("
") (also called hoodie) is a Eurasian bird species in the "Corvus" genus. Widely distributed, it is also known locally as Scotch crow and Danish crow. In Ireland it is called "caróg liath" or grey crow, just as in the Slavic languages and in Danish. In German it is called "mist crow" ("Nebelkrähe"). Found across Northern, Eastern, and Southeastern Europe, as well as parts of the Middle East, it is an ashy grey bird with black head, throat, wings, tail, and thigh feathers, as well as a black bill, eyes, and feet. Like other corvids, it is an omnivorous and opportunistic forager and feeder.

The hooded crow, "
" is a common bird, particularly in areas nearer the coast. Due to this bird's ability to (rarely) prey upon small lambs, the gun clubs of Cork County have killed a large number of these birds in modern times. A collection of the marine algae is housed in the Herbarium of the botany department of the University College Cork. Parts of the South West coastline are hotspots for sightings of rare birds, with Cape Clear being a prime location for bird watching. The island is also home to one of only a few gannet colonies around Ireland and the UK. A major attraction to the coastline of Cork is whale watching, with sightings of fin whales, basking sharks, pilot whales, minke whales, and other species being frequent.
Skopelos has a variety of fauna - including about 60 species of wild birds-native and migratory. There are several birds of prey, most common are the Eleonora's falcon ("Falco Eleonorae"), the European scops owl ("Otus Scops") and the common buzzard ("Buteo buteo"). Also kestrels, eagles, and vultures can be seen. Very obvious throughout the island is the hooded crow ("
"). Occasionally grey herons and kingfishers and more commonly the great cormorant ("Phalacrocorax carbo"), the herring gull ("Larus argentatus") and the yellow-legged gull ("Larus michahellis") are seen along the coast. Severe winter weather can introduced rarely seen mainland birds temporarily. In March 2007 the Municipal Authorities cleaned a wetland habitat near the town beach at the outlet to the sea of Skopelos' only permanently flowing stream. The area had been home to frogs and the birds that fed on them.
Grouse moors have a near-200 year history of recorded predator control. One of the largest recorded kills was at the 6,500 acre Glengarry estate in Scotland where the following mammals were killed between the years 1837 and 1840: stoat ("Mustela erminea") and weasel ("Mustela nivalis") 301, pine marten ("Martes martes"), 246, wildcat ("Felis silvestris") 198, polecat ("Mustela putorius") 106, house cat ("Felis catus") 78, badger ("Meles meles") 67, otter ("Lutra lutra") 48 and red fox ("Vulpes vulpes") 11. Birds killed in the same period were: hooded crow ("
") 1431, raven ("Corvus corax") 475, kestrel ("Falco tinnunculus") 462, buzzard ("Buteo buteo") 285, red kite ("Milvus milvus") 275, goshawk ("Accipiter gentilis") 63, hen harrier ("Circus cyaneus") 63, white-tailed eagle ("Haliaeetus albicilla") 27, osprey ("Pandion haliaetus") 18, golden eagle ("Aquila chrysaetos") 15 and magpie ("Pica pica") 2.
A wild American crow ("Corvus brachyrhynchos") has been observed to modify and use a piece of wood as a probe. Green jays ("Cyanocorax yncas") have been observed using sticks as tools to extract insects from tree bark, Large-billed crows in urban Japan have been filmed using an innovative technique to crack hard-shelled nuts by dropping them onto cross walks (pedestrian crossings) and letting them be run over and cracked by cars. They then retrieve the cracked nuts when the cars are stopped at the red light. In some towns in America, crows drop walnuts onto busy streets so that the cars will crack the nuts.Hooded crows ("
") use bait to catch fish. Individuals (who may have observed fish being fed bread by humans) will place the bread in the water to attract fish.
Inland birds are fewer in numbers. Oyster catcher ("Haematopus ostralegus") (the national bird), curlew ("Numenius"), common snipe ("Capella gallinago") and tern ("Sterna") are common on the heather hills. The Faroese starling (sub-species "Sturnus vulgaris faroeensis") is the biggest starling in the world, and is very common in and around human habitation together with the sparrow ("Passer"). In later years they have been joined by blackbirds ("Turdus merula") which are growing very fast in numbers. Crows ("
") and the Faroese-Icelandic subspecies of raven ("Corvus corax varius") are also very common around human habitation. Until the 19th century a special coloured raven, the pied raven was common on the islands. This was not a special race, but a colour variation of the Faroese-Icelandic sub-species. In the same nest, three youngsters could be black while one could be white-speckled. This colour variation was unique to the Faroe Islands, and maybe because of this, the demand from foreign collectors was big for these ravens. This might be a reason why it became extinct; the last white-speckled raven was seen on Nólsoy in 1949.
Although little detailed information has been obtained of predators, over 80% of great bustards die in the first year of life and many are victims of predation. Chicks are subject to predation by the fact that they are ground-dwelling birds which are reluctant to fly. Predators of eggs and hatchlings include raptors, corvids, hedgehogs, foxes, badgers ("Meles" ssp.), martens ("Martes" ssp.), rats ("Rattus" ssp.) and wild boars ("Sus scrofa"). The most serious natural predators of nests are perhaps red foxes and hooded crows ("
"). Chicks grow very quickly, by 6 months being nearly two-thirds of their adult size, and are predated by foxes, lynxes, wolves ("Canis lupus"), dogs, jackals and eagles. Great bustards of unspecified age and sex have been found amongst Eurasian eagle-owl ("Bubo bubo") prey remains in Bulgaria. The bold, conspicuous behaviour of the breeding adult male bustard may attract the same large mammalian predators that predate chicks, such as wolves and lynx, while the more inconspicuous female may sometimes be attacked by large eagles. However, predation is rare for adults due to their size, nimbleness and safety in numbers due to their social behaviour.
