So in my opinion Northwestern Crows (Corvus Caurinus) are not a real species and instead a subspecies of the American Crow (Corvus Brachyrhynchos) meaning here in WA we have Pacific American Crow (Corvus Brachyrhynchos Hesperis) and ex Northwestern or as I call them Alaskan American Crows (Corvus Brachyrhynchos Caurinus) around Olympic Peninsula thru Port Townsend, Comaino Island, Northern Whidbey Island, San Juan Islands, Western Skagit and Whatcom Counties. Hybrids along rest of Coast and into the Puget Sound Region usually not found over 10 miles from the Sound. * Eastern American Crow (Corvus Brachyrhynchos Brachyrhynchos) seen across most of U.S. rarely occur in the NW esp at Coast with best potential in the fall-early spring.
