RSPB Spotlight Crows:   From Ravens to Jackdaws and Choughs to Jays, crows are among some of Britain’s most familiar, abundant and opinion-dividing birds. The UK’s eight crow species all belong to the Corvidae family, and they have been deeply intertwined in our lives and culture since prehistoric times. Crows have long attracted a bad press.

Reviled as scavengers, crop raiders and jewellery thieves, these birds – known to scientists are corvids – have often found themselves on the wrong end of a shotgun. Yet behind crows’ supposed misdemeanours lies exceptional intelligence and resourcefulness, which both explain their success and have taught us much about animal behaviour. In RSPB Spotlight Crows, Mike Unwin introduces the UK’s eight corvid species, outlining their fascinating natural history and offering essential identification tips.

He also explores the mythology and folklore that have embedded these remarkable birds so deeply in our culture, from nursery rhymes to horror movies. The Spotlight series introduces readers to the lives and behaviour of our favourite animals with eye-catching colour photography and informative expert text.
