The Paradise-crow (Lycocorax pyrrhopterus), also known as the silky crow, is a species of medium-sized bird-of-paradise.
The paradise-crow is approximately 34 cm long with all-dark, soft and silky plumage. It has a black bill, crimson eyes, and a call reminiscent of a dog's bark. Both sexes are similar; the female is slightly smaller than the male. The nominate subspecies has the least or no white patch on the inner flight feathers.
The breeding season is approximately December to June.
The diet of the paradise crow is mainly fruit, with some supplement from arthropods both of which are foraged mainly from dense canopy and middle foliage.
