SV: Pleistocene Corvidae

Extinct species:

Henocitta brodkorbii HOLMAN 1959
Corvus neomexicanus MAGISH & HARRIS 1976

It is conceivable that these are actually extant neotropic forms, they
were probably not compared with all the possible alternatives.

There are also the following invalid/doubtful species.

Protocitta dixi BRODKORB 1957 = Pica hudsonia
Protocitta ajax BRODKORB 1972 = possibly a Calocitta?
Corvus shufeldti (SHARPE 1909) = probably indeterminable

Among extant forms the following also have a Pleistocene fossil record

Blue Jay
Florida Scrub Jay
Gray-breasted Jay
Clark's Nutcracker
Grey Jay

There are also a number of extinct corvids from Hawaii and the West
Indies, but I presume that you don't include these in North America.

HI All:
 Happy New year! I was wondering if anyone had a list of the Corvidae (
Ravens, Crows, etc) from the Pleistocene of North America? This is the
list of the species I have so far from the Pleistocene:

Steller's Jay (Cyanocitta stelleri)
Western Scrub-Jay (Aphelocoma californica)
Pinyon Jay (Gymnorhinus cyanocephalus)
Black-billed Magpie (Pica hudsonia)
Yellow-billed Magpie (P. nuttalli)
American Crow (Corvus brachyrhynchos)
Northwestern Crow (C. caurinus)
Fish Crow (C. ossifragus)
Chihuahuan Raven (C. cryptoleucus)
Common Raven (C. corax)

Am I missing any species especially any extinct species?
