This is another common bird seen daily in Belgrade. This particular bird was photographed along the banks of the Sava River in late September of 2008. The hooded crows (Vrana in Serbian) are much more common than the rooks, although sometimes they are seen together.
I usually see hooded crows scavenging around garbage. They are quite vocal and they call each other in the trees around my house. They have a range through much of Europe to central Asia. They are absent from France and Iberian peninsula.
The “hood” refers to the black feathers on the head and upper chest that the bird sports.
