One Rook’s a Crow, Two Crows is a Rook

I love how crows inspire stories. Most people I meet have something to say about a crow.

Our piano tuner was visiting last week, and this was his contribution. An old Hampshire saying he grew up with.

If you see a lone crow-looking bird, it probably is a crow. If you see a bevy of the birds, it’s likely they are rooks.

Is this true?
