. . .Speaking of The Crow
the crow which is the genus Corvus. The term "crow" is used both as part of the common name of many species, and collectively for all of Corvus.
Species with the word "crow" in their common name include:
- Corvus albus – pied crow (Central African coasts to southern Africa)
- Corvus bennetti – little crow (Australia)
- Corvus brachyrhynchos – American crow (United States, southern Canada, northern Mexico)
- Corvus capensis – Cape crow or Cape rook (Eastern and southern Africa)
Introducing the Raven
A raven is one of several larger-bodied species of the genus Corvus. These species do not form a single taxonomic group within the genus.
There is no consistent distinction between "crows" and "ravens", and these appellations have been assigned to different species chiefly on the basis of their size, crows generally being smaller than ravens.
The largest raven species are the common raven and the thick-billed raven.
Species with the word "raven" in their common name include:
- Corvus albicollis – white-necked raven
- Corvus corax – common raven
- Corvus coronoides – Australian raven
- Corvus crassirostris – thick-billed raven
For Those who are Curious
about crows and the elaboration thereof, and I should note the many terms that the humble crow has given our society. If I were to take the time to spotlight (The Crow) the late Brandon Lee, son of martial arts master, Bruce Lee, it would incur numerous pages of text. To say nothing about the time.
To talk a bit about The Crow, it is a 1994 American dark fantasy action film directed by Alex Proyas, written by David J. Schow and John Shirley. The film stars Brandon Lee in his final film appearance. The film is based on James O'Barr's 1989 comic book of the same name, it tells the story of Eric Draven (Lee), a rock musician who is revived from the dead to avenge his own death as well as the rape and murder of his fiancée.

Good night, Indianapolis, Indiana.
