Carrion Crow

About the Carrion Crow

The Carrion Crow is native to western and central Europe as well as eastern Asia. The separation of these two populations is believed to have taken place during the last ice age, with the closely allied Hooded Crow filling the gap between.

Carrion Crows are completely black and noisy. They perch on top of trees and call three or four times in quick succession, with a slight pause between each series of croaks.
