Haha, we do get a few crows that stick around, but I’ve never seen one before the end of March.

Elsewhere though, crows commonly harass ravens so shouldn’t be too bad

I live in South-Central Washington and American Crows are few and far between or at least in my observations. However, Common Ravens are quite plentiful. 🙂

Well it doesn't have to be an American Crow, it can be Canadian.

The ravens replace the crows in the winter and then the crows come and replace the ravens in the spring.

Though, both occur during the Spring/Summer just less ravens and more crows. I’m thinking the crows that overwinter here must hangout more around the city centre. 
If I drive about 10 minutes North to the country side near sunset, I can see over 400 ravens fly in over about an hour and a half.
I prefer ravens more for whatever reason.

Yesterday in the hour before sundown there were hundreds of crows that flew over the lake where I was photographing.  I think they were landing somewhere a few hundred yards from where I was.  I couldn't see them, but heard a loud cacophony of calls.

Same thing happened last time I was there on Jan. 1, 2021, except I would say there were thousands of them -- waves of 50 to 100 at a time every minute or two, with many stragglers in between each wave.

Next time I'm there I'm going to go see where they are roosting.

I can think of a couple. Ravens have a much less obnoxious call and don't try pick through everyone's garbage on my block on trash day. But I've also only seen a couple of ravens in the city vs. the plethora of crows.

How about a picture with three species, each from a different major grouping of birds, ie Waterfowl, BoP (including vultures), sparrows, warblers, flycatchers, thrushes, etc.

Would a photo with a California Scrub-Jay, a Spotted Towhee, and a California Quail meet this challenge?  Thanks! 🙂
