The American Crow is found in southern Canada and most of the U.S. They are very adaptable to civilization, and despite attempts in the past to eradicate them, they are more common than ever. Crows are very sociable and gather in communal roost on winter nights.
They live in a wide variety of semi-open habitats, from farming country and open fields to clearings in the woods. Very adaptable, they often live in towns and even large cities.
Omniverous. They will feed on practically anything they can find, from seeds, berries and fruit to carrion and garbage, small snakes and the young and eggs of other birds.
Site is in a tree or large shrub, 10-30' above ground. Nest, built by both sexes, is a large bulky basket of shrubs, twigs, bark strips, weeds and mud, lined with grass, moss, plant fibers and feathers.
4-6, sometimes 3-9, dull blue-green to gray green. Incubation is mostly by the female, about 18days.
Young, fed by both parents and sometimes "helpers" - the offspring from the previous season. Young leave the nest after 4-5 weeks after hatching.
