Every time I read about smart corvids I think about how we blew up all the rookeries in the 1930's.

Miscellany: War
Monday, Feb. 06, 1939

Near New Berlin, the Illinois Conservation Department bombing crew set off their 13th rookery blast of the season. In a crow rookery a quarter-mile long, 180 specially designed dynamite bombs were exploded, killing an estimated 25,000 to 30,000 crows. Approximate number of crows killed this winter in Illinois' crow war: 150,500.
