The eastern carrion crow (Corvus corone orientalis) is a member of the crow family and a subspecies of the carrion crow. Differences from the nominate subspecies include a larger size, at a length about 500 millimetres (20 in), and more graduated outer tail feathers. The eastern carrion crow is found in Siberia from the Yenisei to Japan, south to Central Asia, Afghanistan, Eastern Persia, Kashmir, Tibet and northern China. They generally lay three-five eggs in trees or buildings. The eggs show no difference from the nominate subspecies. [1]
