What Eats Crows? What Do Crows Eat?

The main predators, or natural enemies, of crows and ravens are hawks and owls. Hawks attack, kill, and eat them during the day, and owls come after them at night when they are on their roosts.

But crows also attack hawks and owls—though not to eat them. Crows seem to hate their natural enemies, and when they find one of them, they attack them in big, noisy groups in a behavior called “mobbing.”

A hawk or owl that is being mobbed by crows always tries to get away to avoid being pecked.

And, what does a crow eat? Crows are very adaptable birds, and they eat almost anything, from seeds and fruits to carrion, which means dead animals.
