The crow is a bird that can be seen in a multitude of habitats: wooded areas, fields, orchards, swamps and bogs, on shorelines, and in urban areas. During the winter, crows migrate to warmer climates. This is a gregarious species that gathers in large groups, particularly at night.
The American crow adopts an omnivorous diet. It’s therefore a bird that consumes insects, fruits and seeds, crustaceans, fish, eggs, chicks, food scraps, and small mammals. Crows also feed on carrion.
A monogamous bird, the American crow reaches sexual maturity around two years of age and usually only reproduces at the age of four or five years. Crows make their nests in trees or large bushes. Each breeding season, the female of this species lays three to six eggs, which she will cover for a period of around 18 days.
