Crows are scavengers by nature (though some species do hunt) and as such have a bit of an ominous feel to them. They watch over prey waiting for it to fall, and always hang over the shoulder of a predator to pick up the scraps. You might even forget that they are there keeping you company. In the trees to your left, your right, behind you… 😉
The crow is actually a genus, which means there are many different species of crow such as the American Crow that’s domestic to the United States. They mate in pairs for life and can live in families of up to 15 crows. They have a loud ‘caw’ to alert the family of potential food or danger.
