Crows are native to Nebraska, but they flourished after the landscape shifted to more cropland. For many years, crows were under attack by hunter and farmer alike because, when gathered in large flocks, they were seen as a potential health hazard and caused extensive crop damage. They were hunted, poisoned and trapped in great numbers, with a bounty being placed on crows in some areas.
