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.
