Many, see text

Corvida is under the Sibley-Ahlquist taxonomy, one of two parvorders contained within the suborder Passeri. More recent research suggests that it is not a distinct clade but an evolutionary grade instead. As such the usage of this parvorder is likely to be subject to further revision.
