The African Pied Crow is a widely distributed African bird species in the crow genus.

This species, Africa's most widespread member of the genus Corvus, occurs from Sub-Saharan Africa down to the Cape of Good Hope and on the large island of Madagascar, The Comoros islands, Aldabra, Zanzibar, Pemba, and Fernando Po. It inhabits mainly open country with villages and towns nearby. It does not occur in the equatorial rainforest region.

The nest is usually built in tall, isolated trees, though sometimes smaller specimens are used, depending on availability. The cross supports of telephone poles are also frequently used. They lay on average 4-5 eggs from September to November (depending on latitude). The eggs are pale green spotted with brown. The eggs are normally covered when the incubating female leaves the nest. Incubation is 18-19 days and the young are usually fledged by around 45 days. Both sexes rear the young.
