Crows are known to damage seedling corn plants by pulling the sprouts and consuming the kernels and at times damage ripening corn during the milk and dough stages of development. Other crops that may be damaged by crows include ripening grain sorghum, commercial sunflowers, pecans, various fruits, watermelons, and various other crops.
Crows are also known to eat eggs and sometimes the young of waterfowl, pheasants, and other birds during nesting season. This can be a localized problem where breeding waterfowl are concentrated and where there is too little habitat cover to hide nests.
