  An group of Australian ravens or little ravens  I was watching today in
kangaroo ground   had an individual  amongst them with a distinctive brown
neck and upper breast area  ,
Can any one  offer  any tips on what features to  use to confirm  which
raven it actually is   and to rule out house crow ?  do you use the call?

The eye colour was also much darker than  the other birds.
 House crow is a bird ive seen many times in India and this bird didn’t
particularly  remind me of it, but  ive  never before noticed such a
distinct brown nape on a raven
[] cheers ian
