American Crows are common throughout the lower 48 with the exception of extreme deserts. Take a hike on a trail through open forests or a stroll through your neighborhood park and you are likely to cross paths.
What does the Crow look like?
American Crows are completely jet black with long thick bills and stout legs.
American Crows are an incredibly smart and familiar bird for most of us. These large jet-black birds generally feed on the ground and are not overly picky, eating just about anything. Despite the perception that they thrive on carrion, Crows have a tough time breaking the skin of mammals and almost always have to wait until something else does it for them. Intelligence is not lacking in Crows as well, families are known to work together creating distractions while other family members steal food or raid other bird's nets. These highly social birds often roost in the winter with up to a million other crows, often in the same location for years and years. Crows have more than a dozen different calls, but the one most familiar is the harsh "caw."
