In this study it was revealed that Grey-necked crow (Corvus splendens) can recognize human face, they can distinguish a specific human face even when human changes his dress. If crows target a person as their potential enemy, they call their entire member and start cawing in louder voice. Most of them also attack humans from back side on neck when human is not seeing him. Corvus splendens are more possessive about their chicks as compare to other birds but this study revealed that they do not come closer to their chicks if they are handled by humans. In current study it was observed that the Grey-necked baby crow died of a disease with the symptoms of bending his neck, which is considered to be a viral disease called Newcastle disease.
