I saw an American crow like the one pictured in the Sibley field guide as it has all white primary and greater coverts as well as a white tail band (not in Sibley). Overall, this bird is quite a bit smaller than the other crows, particularly the beak. Anyhow, not overly exciting or rare but I thought photographers and other keen birders might want to know about it because it looks pretty amazing, especially in flight.
