Why is it called the White-necked Crow? Its neck is not white and it's not like there was a shortage of distinctive characteristics. Its irises are red. That’s relay rear in members of the Corvus genus. They should call it the Red-eyed Crow and if there is already a Corvid called that then they should call it the Red eyed Raven.

Okay, so far there does not seem to be a huge amount of interest. But that could change.

it is more closely related to a wolf then the European polecat is to a cat.

Fisher cats. They're not cats and they don't catch fish.

The bases of the feathers on the neck are white. Sometimes if it's windy and the feathers are ruffled you can see it.

Sorry, OP. There are lots of animals named after traits that are super-difficult to see in the wild. Especially animals that look super-similar to their relatives.

>bald eagle

>>2019533

Since there are already corvids and bald eagles in this thread, I'm gonna post this:

Seriously, look how beta that fucker looks. Not so tough against the power of camaraderie, is it?

Another problem with the name is that it makes it relay easy to confuse the whit-necked crow with the white necked raven.
