I've been watching up to fifty crows harass a Cooper's hawk this morning. They perch on various trees cawing loudly, many dive bombing the hawk, and then chasing it from tree to tree. I wouldn't give the hawk even odds if it was caught out without cover and wonder how many are killed by crow mobbing. Earlier this summer I watched the same thing happen to a sharp shinned hawk.

We have Ravens here, they are quite a bit larger than Crows. They are also quite intimidating en mass. They will drive Bald Eagles away.

Very smart and they hang around in murders of 50 or more.
