The best way to recognize these crows is to notice the complete black color on their body. Like the house crow, these crows do survive on the variety of food and they do adjust to different situations. Jungle crows are much better hunters as compared to house crows and they survive more on the natural diet, though they do love to eat human leftover if it is available.

It is not an easy task to take their pictures because of their shy nature and sharp black color. Their voice resembles house crow; however, it is much sharper and deeper as compared to them.  We can easily notice Jungle Crows in groups and at night, they mostly sleep in groups.
