Cuervos? Que estilos?

The thread about the old saying reminded me: We have many ravens where we live but I understand that cuervos refers to both crows and ravens. Maybe the word just translates "corvids'" (Jays are corvids too.) Without resorting to latin names, does Spanish easily differentiate between crows and ravens'

No, it does not. This is a common phenomenon between many different languages. The same applies to plants. Language reflects culture, and in Spanish culture there was apparently no need to distinguish between these closely related species.

But at least we can all agree on the meaning of Cuervo Gold. wink
