Hooded Crow Corvus cornix (1-2,3,

(1-2) Barcelona. The two seen at El Prat de Llobregat from mid May that were seen building a nest on a Cyprus tree were seen intermitently in June. There was normally one bird around but on 7.7.2016 the two adults were photographed on a Cyprus tree at El Prat de Llobregat (Jordi Ruestes, Xavier Santaeufemia via Pau Esteban @ornitho.cat). The stage of moult was different from the bird being recorded at Viladecans, a nearby population, therefore confirming that there are actually 3 birds at Llobregat Delta. Seen both again on 12.7 (ornitho.cat). nOn 19.7 one of the birds was seen from a plane while taking-off at El Prat de Llobregat airport, Barcelona (José María Fernández Zapata). On 21.7 it was still there (Quim Minoves @ ornitho.cat).

(3) Barcelona. There was a bird showing an extensive wing moult at La Murtra beach, Viladecans, Barcelona, on 5.7. See two photos below and a thumbnail here (Ricard Gutiérrez). This same individual was seen again on 9.7 (Ignasi Badia @ornitho.cat). Seen again on 11.7 (Helena Navalpotro @ornitho.cat).
