Corvus is a widely distributed genus of medium-sized to large birds in the family Corvidae. The genus includes species commonly known as crows, ravens and rooks; there is no consistent distinction between "crows" and "ravens".
Recent research has found some crow species capable of not only tool use, but also tool construction. Thus, crows are now considered to be among the world's most intelligent animals with an encephalization quotient equal to that of many non-human primates.

Crows gather in large communal roosts numbering between 200 and tens of thousands of individuals during nonbreeding months, particularly in the winter. These gatherings tend to happen near large food sources such as garbage dumps and shopping centers. This group of crows lives near Niedertraubling.
