Evidence of avian predation on Greylag Goose (Anser anser) goslings is generally inferential. Here, we report an observation of a Carrion Crow (Corvus corone corone) preying on a gosling in Port Meadow, Oxford, United Kingdom. Our observation demonstrates that, in addition to being an egg predator, Carrion Crows are opportunistic predators of Greylag Goose goslings. To our knowledge, this is the first time that this interaction has been documented in the literature.
