How to identify

The Hooded Crow is closely related to the Carrion Crow, which until recently was regarded as the same species. In areas where the two species overlap, there may be some interbreeding with hybrids showing a mixed grey and black body plumage. Like Carrion Crows, Hooded Crows also feed on dead animals. Unlike crows they can be more sociable in the feeding habits and groups of them may be seen together in fields.
