The colours are different from what we're used to here. A wise looking bird.

I'd recognize it as a crow but its coloration is quite different from what I'm used to.

I don't think I've seen a hooded crow before. I would guess he's just as much a nuisance as are our crows. I may have told you this story - but the other day on a golf course, a big hawk with a squirrel in its talons, flew right over our heads being chase by 5-6 crows. The crows wanted that squirrel and weren't much afraid of the hawk!
