Scottish Corvids

*Las entradas sobre Escocia las escribo en inglés

When I arrived to Scotland, the first bird I saw after landing was a Carrion crow (Corvus corone). Several minutes later, I realised that crows in Scotland are, probably, the largest bird family in the country.

Here you can find most of the crows that are in Catalonia but the Alpine chough (Pyrrhocorax graculus). On the other hand, it's relatively easy to find species which are hard to watch in in my country, like Rooks (Corvus frugilegus) and Hooded crows (Corvus cornix).
