Male and Female: The crow overall is a shiny black color with a hint of purple in direct sunlight; a large broad black bill; a short and slightly square tail; feet and legs are black. Stands approximately 17-21" or 43-53 cm tall.
Voice: A variety of calls are known to this bird, but the one most often heard and distinct to this bird is the caaaaaw which softens at the end.
Food: Crows are Omnivorous, meaning that they will eat anything. There diet however manly consists of insects, food waste, grains, seeds, and carrion.
Nest/Eggs: Their nest is a large basket of twigs, sticks, vines, moss, feathers, fur and hair, usually located on the crotch of a tree or shrub. 3-4 eggs.
Although one might think that crows are a nuisance bird, they actually will devour fairly large quantities of grasshoppers, beetles, and grubs that can be extremely destructive to ones crops.
Due to the fact that the American Crow looks the same in both male and female, I have combined these together under the one heading.
