    I'm sure crow probably tastes terrible but does anyone have any experience eating it? Is it safe?

    I imaging that a crow would taste about the same as most birds that are neither predatory or scavengers. Vultures you can't eat and I've read that most predatory birds are not worth eating. I wonder exactly what birds the "4 and 20 blackbirds baked into a pie" referred to?

    Ive had crow. Fry it on low temp in a skillet with butter, onion, bacon. Add cider, full cream and salt+pepper. Not bad at all.
    They use their muscles and therefor has more bloodflow through the tissues than chicken, so more iron in the flavour than say chicken.

    As with anything that eats carrion it needs to be well cooked but there is nothing toxic or poisonous about the meat from crows. In a tight spot I would cheerfully eat any of the corvids but pigeon is much easier for me to find and shoot.

    we do have crows in this area but wood pigeons are more abundant, they come into the garden here as we feed all the birds.
