As you are well aware, lots of species are separable by call mainly or only.
Per the 6th, 2011, edition of the National Geographic field guide the best
way to separate Fish Crow from other species of crows is by call.  Cornell
University has calls for both
American Crow and Fish Crow;  Xeno-Canto has even
more calls for both.  This particular conundrum is reason for folks to carry
audio recording equipment in the field.

Subject: [mou-net] Fish Crows in Minneapolis????

Hi All--

Working on my blog, I serendipitously wrote a post today about the Fish
Crow. ( ) Come to discover that Fish
Crows are found up the Mississippi Valley to St. Louis and accidentally into
southern Ontario!  Fish Crows are moving north. Twice this fall I saw or
heard odd crows.  One was noticeably small but not obviously young.  Another
time I heard crows call like a Fish Crow--this was in Updown near 47th
street or so.  At the time, not knowing that a Fish Crow was remotely
possible, I wrote the calls off as off-pitch American Crows.

No way I am listing these!  But we should be on the alert.  The two species
are so similar, I am somewhat puzzled as to how one would tell them apart
here in Minnesota.  I have Fish and American crow calls on the blog.
