Based on the IP addresses of the comments on this post, I created a map of the 10 comments on the Crows and Hawks post. Looks like it’s country wide, across the U.S. So far this seems to be a phenomenom of American Crows and Red-Tailed Hawks; if anyone spots any other configuration, it’d be great to know.

    […] If anyone gets a photo of crows & a hawk together, please send me the link and I’ll post it here. Also, be sure to tell us where in the U.S. (or elsewhere) you saw this phenomenom when you comment below. I’ve made a map of the general location of all the sitings reported here in the comments.

    I have been observing for over an hour, immature crows and hawks being taught by the elders how to depend their territory. These amazing species are working together teaching their young. Both groups have a territory here, this is amazing to watch. Fascinating how they have all grouped together to teach each others species. Never seen anything like this before. I live in Ballwin Missouri, St.Louis west county.

    Hey, I just noticed it’s been five years since I created the map. There’s now about 40 sitings. Thanks, everyone!

    Saw this phenomenon today on Sullivan’s Island, South Carolina. A Red-tailed hawk was perched on a sprinkler coming up out of the ground. Two crows were on the ground nearby and when I went outside, the hawk took off and the two crows took off right along with it. Very odd so I decided to look into this and ended up here.

    We live in Mebane, North Carolina. The past couple years, we have had a pair of hawks that breed and return to the same tree. Last year, the beginning of the fall, we saw an amazing sight. There must’ve been 50 hawks flying around above the house and area. They made such a ruckus. Really exciting. This year we have noticed an additional friend, a big black crow. They play around in the trees and make a lot of noise and swoop and fly and just have fun. it seems. Neat friends.
    Thanks Keith

    A group of 4 crows and a hawk passed over, flying around and calling out to each other. It was bazaar. But of course I didn’t have enough time to get my camera. I’m in Cleveland, TN.

    Have a small flock of crows (about 6) that have been hanging around for several years and lately have had a hawk hanging around with them. Strange site to me because a few years ago I watched a hawk chase a crows through our large pin oak. Seemed at the time that the crow was in fear for its life. I’m in Stallings, NC.
