The theory behind this old wives’ tale, is that all birds know how smart crows are, so if a couple of them are seen feeding amongst your pals, it must be safe to join them.

In reality pigeons hate crows and it is pure coincidence that they feed on the same field.

You will often see crows chasing and generally harassing other birds off their feeding grounds.

By all means put crow decoys out if you want to shoot crows, but I would rather use pigeon decoys when I want to go pigeon shooting.
