Hybrid Carrion x Hooded Crow

This hybrid Carrion x Hooded Crow was also part of yesterday's flock but I only picked it up in flight and then it landed beyond the range of decent shots. I might pop back to the area in the next few days to see if I can get better shots, but since I have only seen this bird twice in the last three years I think there is a low chance of success. However, as it has predominantly Carrion Crow plumage it is probably not easy to pick up unless actively searching through the crows for something different.

Presumably this bird would be better described as a Carrion x hybrid as presumably it is a second generation hybrid.
