The Carrion Crow is a common species in town and country, adapting to whatever changes humans can throw at it. They are omnivorous and highly intelligent birds and their ability as egg thieves can make them unpopular with farmers and gamekeepers. They are closely related to the Hooded Crow, which occurs over much of central and eastern Europe, plus parts of Scotland and Ireland. The two species were considered conspecific (i.e. the same species) until recently.
