This species is easily recognized beak (Dimya, in the strict sense, is an external anatomical structure that allows food intake and…).

Its size (length between 46 and 59 cm) and body proportions vary by region.

It still has a very large beak with an arched upper part.
In general, there are more or less dark and duller gray hairs on the back of the head, on the face the neck (The neck is the region of the body between the head and the rest of the body…), shoulders and lower body. Its wings, tail, face and throat are a deeper, glossy black.
In Indian varieties, density (The density or relative density of a body is equal to the ratio of its density ….) gray changes; almost black to lighter gray.

Ecology and behavior

Like all corvids, it is omnivorous and versatile in its diet. Feeds on a wide variety of food (living or dead, plant or animal) on the ground or in trees, but willingly pretends to be scavengers and scavengers.

Distribution and habitat

Its range extends from the coast of North Asia to Afghanistan and eastern Iran to large areasthe west (West is the cardinal point, opposite east.

In India, various species (or subspecies?) breed in the plains from March to May, but some lay eggs even as late as mid-December.

Some nests have been found to consist partially or only of ropes [3].
