Sometimes it is difficult to tell the difference between carrion crows, hooded crows, rooks and jackdaws.

The carrion crow is all black whereas the hooded crow is more grey. The rook is all black but has a grey beak and a bare patch on its face. The jackdaw has a more stubby beak, a black crown and a grey neck.
