Crow nests are built 15 to 60 feet above the ground in tall trees. These nests are typically 1 to 2 feet in diameter and are built in the limbs or in the trunk of trees. There are some cases where crows will build nests in shrubs or hedge grows when there are no trees available. In urban areas, crows can place their nests in the sides of buildings or on window ledges.
Nests are made up of branches and twigs and lined with moss, hair, twine, cloth, and other soft materials.
