We hate Corvus brachyrhynch~os paascuus!

Florida Crows -Corvus brachyrhynch~os paascuus-Florida’s Flying POOP Machines
     Crows are members of the family Corvidae, which includes jays, magpies, ravens and many varieties of crows. One of the most widespread and adaptable of birds in the world, soiling car finishes worldwide! 
Many people in Gibsonton think the large black birds they often see along US HWY 41’s Vultures pecking at road kill are ravens. Ravens, in fact, do not live in Gibsonton or any other part of Florida.   We have two species of crows: the America Crow and the Fish Crow & we hate them both!  It is difficult to tell these two species apart. Their habitats overlap and, at first glance, they are indistinguishable.  They both are deadly accurate on vehicle bombing runs.  The American crow is about 17 inches from the tip of its bill to the end of its tail. Fish crows are a bit smaller. Their call is also a nasal "uh uh," as if saying "no." However, the juvenile American crow's begging call is similar, so it is especially difficult to tell these two species apart during the summer breeding months.

even worse than pigeons then? Actually, when I was little and lived on Shetland, the farmers and dad used to shoot the crows because they killed lambs. So I sympathise!
