    Fish Crow Identification

    The Four Keys to ID

    • Size & Shape

      Fish Crows fit the standard crow shape: hefty, well-proportioned birds with heavy bills, sturdy legs, and broad wings. At rest, Fish Crows’ wings fall short of their medium-length, square tails.

      Relative Size

      Very slightly smaller than an American Crow.
