A question for list members.

As part of an information gathering task, I'm assisting in gathering
records of House Crows in Victoria and especially recent records from
Phillip Island.  The Atlas of Victorian Wildlife currently has just 6
records of the species.  Most appear to have arrived via ship from India or
Sri Lanka and the sites of the records were Geelong, Werribee and Phillip

If any list members have seen any Indian (House) Crows on Phillip Island
recently I would be keen to hear from them.

Also, any experiences with this species as a pest would be most welcome.

Please advise me directly.
