American Crow – Corvus Brachyrhynchos

Status: Least Concern
American Crow

Habitat: American crows are found in North America, from Canada to northern Mexico. They are found in open habitats, such as meadows, farmland and open woodland. Northern crows may migrate south in the winter; southern crows do not.

Adaptations: American crows are very social, sometimes forming flocks in the thousands. Their flight style is unique, a patient, methodical flapping that is rarely broken up with glides. The most usual call is “CaaW!-CaaW!-CaaW!”
Diet: Crows are opportunistic, and they will eat several kinds of food, including insects, earthworms, fruit, seeds, reptiles, eggs and rodents. In towns and cities, they quickly learn to associate people with food and will scavenge garbage.
Fun Fact: Inquisitive and sometimes mischievous, crows and their cousins, the ravens, jays and magpies, are some of the most intelligent of all birds. They learn quickly and are excellent problem solvers, even learning how to use tools in some cases.
