G'day all

Twitter just severd this article up:

Jønsson, K A, Fabre, P-H and Irestedt, M. 2012. Brains, tools,
innovation and biogeography in crows and ravens.  BMC Evolutionary
Biology 12: (72)

Apparently the eastern and western populations are genetically
distinct and separated by a 100km wide C. coronoides gap along the
Great Australian Bight.  The geographically well-separated populations
of the Forest Raven, on the other hand, are not distinct.

Apologies if this is old news to most of the group!
