The jackdaw is common in a lot of European cities, this bird is often confused with the crow, which is a fair bit larger than the jackdaw.

Differences between crows and jackdaws:
Jackdaws are smaller than crows.
Crows are all-black, jackdaws have a grey head and nape. Their black plumage is also ‘dirtier’ than the crow’s.
Jackdaws have white eyes, rather than black.
