American Crow (Corvus brachyrhynchos)
- HABITAT - with trees nearby. They also thrive in suburban neighborhoods.

- FACTS - Being member of the corvid family (along with magpies, ravens and jays), American Crows are very intelligent birds with problem solving abilities, strong memories and social skills.
