Stewart is sharing his House Sparrows with us this week at Paying Ready Attention. Who knew they were in Australia?!
This week, I am featuring the American Crow. They stay in our area year-round, but autumn brings a lot more of them. Situated on the east coast of the United States, we are in the migration path known as the Atlantic Flyway.
Crows are found in many habitats, from wooded areas, to beaches, to urban areas. They will eat just about anything, including the young nestlings of other birds.
allaboutbirds.org states the oldest recorded crow in the wild lived 16 years, and a captive crow in New York lived 59 years. They are highly susceptible to West Nile Virus that wiped out large numbers of them. There is a lot more information available if you click the link at the beginning of this paragraph.
