Rooks are the country cousin of the Carrion Crow, usually found in fields and at the roadside where they forage for worms and insects. They are similar to the crow apart from the bare patch of pale grey skin around the beak and the much lighter-coloured, longer beak. They are gregarious birds, rarely seen alone, and can form huge nesting colonies. Rooks can be found from Iceland through to far-Eastern Asia. They are 45-47 cm in length.
