A more infrequent visitor to the Garden

Carrion Crows are quite wary of humans, the reason why you tend to see them perching on TV Aerials, Chimney Pots, Pylons and Telephone Cables.
Always staying fairly local to their nests, if you have some, they and their following generations will be there a long long time.
A fine exmple of this is the Tower of London where they have lived quite happily for centuries
They nest in the forks of large trees, sometimes in Electricity Pylons. The nests are made of twigs and bark.
Garden wise they are quite friendly, living on worms, fruit, eggs and unfortuneately young birds and eggs. They are only seen as a pest to Gamekeepers.
