The American crow  (corvus brachyrhynchos) can be found from the Pacific to the Atlantic coasts or Canada, the French islands of Saint-Pierre and Miquelon, south through the United States to northern Mexico, with the exception of the Pacific temperate rain forests and the tundra or northern Canada.

 

They are a large perching bird measuring from 16" to 24" from beak to tail. About 40% of that length is tail. The wingspan of the American crow is from 33" to 39." Males are slightly larger than females, but both have iridescent black feathers, and their legs, feet, and bills are black as well. They are long legged with a thick neck and a heavy straight bill. Although difficult to tell from ravens, which are slightly larger, they don't hunch over and fluff their throat feathers when they call like ravens do.

 

American crows are omniverous, eating eveything from insects to carrion, from nuts, fruit and berries to human scraps,  from grain, eggs, and nestlings to stranded fish. They usually feed on the ground and can often be found scavenging in dumps and other places where garbage is deposited. They are also active hunters and will prey on mice, frogs and other small animals.

They are comfortable in many types of environments and can be seen in the wilderness, parks, farmlands, open woodlands, towns and major cities.In the Pacific temperate rain forests and the tundra  of the far north they are replaced by the raven. Most American crown in the United States and Mexico are residents with only those in Canada migrating sound for the winter.

 

Outside of nesting season, roughly April, May and June, they often gather in large communal roosts with as few as a couple hundred birds to over a million.

 

They are intelligent birdes and have been known to modify and use tools to obtain food. They are excellent mimics and reproduce a wide variety of sounds, animal noises, and bird calls.

The fish crow (corvus ossifragus) is found on the Gulf Coast of the United States from east Texas to Florida and up the Atlantic Coast to Rhode Island. it is also found inland along major waterways like the Mississippi River and freshwater lakes in those areas. It is often found in towns and cities, in parks and landfills It is a short range migrant never going more than 180 miles.

 

It has the same build as other crows and ravens, though slightly smaller than the American crow. The fish crow has glossy black feathers, and a strong black beak, and black legs and feet. Fish crows often puff out their neck and body feathers when calling making a ruffled collar on their throat...They are 14.2" to 15.7" in length with a wingspan of over 33". When walking their wings appear to fall short of their body lenght.

Omnivores like all crows and ravens. the fish crow will eat almost anything from garbage to carrion, live animals insects, seeds and eggs. They have been known to harrass other birds like gulls, ibis, ospreys and other crows to steal their food. As their name implies, they eat a variety of marine life from fish to crabs and other crustaceans.

 

Fish crows are intelligent, curious and very social. They place their nests in the tops of trees in their environment, from mangroves to evergreens, whatever is available. The easiest way to tell them from other crows and ravens is their call which is harsh and nasal.
