Well, if you want to be exact, it's a Karasu-Tengu (Crow-Tengu), which is the lower form of Tengu. The others are called Great-Tengu and are depicted with red skin, human faces and a very long nose.

There are info about the Yokai monsters all over the web, and in a few good books. The Tengu seem to be able to have a myriad of appearences. they're often referred to as bird-like, so that's what I focused on.
