The Bougainville Crow (Corvus meeki) is a species of bird in the crow family Corvidae. It is found in on the island of Bougainville in Papua New Guinea and the neighbouring Shortland Islands in the Solomon Islands. Within its range it is the only species of crow. The Bougainville Crow is a heavy crow, 41 cm long, with all black plumage and a massive black bill.
