The crow that we are most familiar with, the Carrion Crow is all black and makes a hoarse, cawing sound. Carrion Crows make big nests out of twigs, rags, bones, and anything else they can find, which they hide in tall bushes; they do not nest in colonies like Rooks but are mostly solitary. Carrion Crows are birds of farmland and grassland, but are extremely adaptable and will come to gardens for food, often seeming to be quite fearless. They feed on carrion, invertebrates and grain, as well as stealing eggs and chicks from other birds’ nests. Although now classed as a separate species to the similar Hooded Crow, Carrion Crows can interbreed with their cousins, and hybrids occur where their ranges cross.
