Carrion Crow (Corvus corone)

Appearance:

Very similar to Hooded Crow, apart from the all black plumage. Easily confused with young Rooks, since these lack the naked bill base and baggy trousers of adults. Carrion Crow differs from Rooks by deeper bill with a more curved upper mandible (bill of Rook conical). The wings are evenly broad, not more narrow closer to the body (difficult to judge). Carrion Crow shows no hint of crest, as is often seen in Rooks. Differs from Raven in less deep bill, no neck ruff and rounded, not wedge-shaped, tail.

Sound:

Probably impossible to tell from Hooded Crow by sound with certainty, but tends to sound harder, and more mean.
