 At night the American Crow forms large communal roosts where thousand of crows gather in trees.

Crows eat small animals, bird eggs, fish, snails, and insects to seeds, fruits, and human refuse.cr2Happy Birding!

  1. Love birding…thanks for the crow info. Have you thought of joining the Audubon Society? I just joined the Mitchell Lake Wetlands Audubon Center in San Antonio, Texas. Yesterday, I received a copy of “Audubon” magazine which is fascinating. There’s an excellent article in the March/April 2014 issue about a baby boom in snowy owls. There’s also an article about social weaverbirds in the Kalahari desert. Birds are fascinating when you start learning about what they do and how they survivie!


    • I have thought about joining the Audubon Society in San Diego. I use San Diego Audubon Societies web site to search for birding spots. Maybe I’ll take the plunge one day and join because I agree birds are fascinating 🙂 I’m glad you stopped by. 🙂


  2. They also eat carrion which is why you see them at the side of the road so often. What I like most about the crows is that they are smart, communicative and social. Our little band of crows patrols the neighborhood for hawks and keeps them pretty much at bay. Loved this post …
