Crow Description
Crow
Birds of prey that have fed upon the carcasses of the infected. Beady eyes, sharp claws, sharp beaks, and very much crazy. That shrill cry should send a tingle up anyone's spine.

Always found in a small flock, these birds can cause a lot of damage in a little amount of time. They seek to overhwhelm their prey by attacking in their large numbers, and peck them to death. A flock of crows were responsible for the death of S.T.A.R.S. member Forrest Speyer in Resident Evil 1. Crows are usually more of an annoyance than a formidable enemy, as long as you don't allow yourself to be cornered by a large number of them.

Most of the time that you will find them in the game however it takes something to spook them before they attack so be careful with what you do when you hear or see them around. You might just trigger an attack.

Strategy
The standard attacks of the crows are clawing and pecking at you. You should button bash to get out of the lock then run. It's the best way to escape getting trapped in the same position again. Their other attack is what I call the dive-bomb. It is where the crows sit on the ground and the come swooping in to make a flying pass but don't actually attack. You can use this to your advantage in someway because it allows you to shoot them out of the air if you see it coming. However seeing as a dive-bomb sometimes becomes an attack the best way to avoid it is just to run out of the way. They will miss if you move at the right time.

They cant deal much damage with each attack, but multiple attacks can add the damage up fast. In most cases you can usually run past the crows without taking much damage. If you do need to confront them, the handgun is more than sufficient. The shotgun is good for taking out a wide area if you are being attacked from all angles. Single crows can even be taken out with well timed knife strikes.
