large crow very noisy & aggresive
No interactions present.
It's clearly a youngster, but I can't decide which! It seems to lack the jackdaw's typical colouration, but this wouldn't be surprising in a young bird.
The call and size would make it easy to recognise in life.... It is noisy and "agressive" because it is lost.
Young crows around habitation is unusual too - I have never seen one unless it was flying over.
Lavendar mentions a nest - if it is a "normal" nest - a bundle of sticks etc - in the open, it is a crow. Jackdaws are almost always hole-nesters.
T IS AN ADULT BIRD, I CAN SEE BABIES IN A NEST OF STICKS, I DID READ THAT CARRION CROWS NEST ALONE NOT IN ROOKERIES I HAVE ACTUALLY SEEN IT CHASE OFF A HERON TODAY, THIS PARTICULAR BIRD HAS BEEN AROUND ON ITS OWN FOR A COUPLE OF YEARS BEFORE FINDING A MATE IN FACT IT BUILT THE NEST LAST YEAR.
Carrion crows are FAR more suspicious than you imply this one is, which may well mean that the bird was hand-reared. It would also explain why it took a while to find a mate - because it is so incautious other crows did not feel safe with it.
