Genus PYRRHOCORAX

Pyrrhocorax differs from Graculus in having ,a much shorter and a much stouter bill, and the lower mandible not nearly so much feathered at the base as the upper one. The structure of the two genera is otherwise quite the same, and they do not differ in habits, except that the Yellow-billed Chough appears to be a tame and fearless bird, taking the place of the Common Crow in parts of Kashmir.
