Large-billed crow

DSC_0687This large-billed crow was very kind and landed circa two meters from me on the grassy ridge looking down the moats of Nagoya castle. He ate dandelions. Much bigger than its european cousin with a curved beak and didn´t seem to be afraid at all. The bird book told me the crow sometimes harasses pedestrians but he didn´t seem to be disturbed by me.  The latin name is Corvus macrorhynchos.
