It is easily recognised at close range by an obvious grey shawl around the nape which makes the face and forehead look conspicuously black. In flight it is smaller with shorter, more rounded and quicker-paced wings than other crows, sometimes seeming almost pigeon-like.
Resident on farmland and in towns and parks, nesting in holes in old trees, cliffs and buildings.
