Crows are usually black in colour all over but some species are not totally black and are found with white, gray or brown colouring around the neck or the beak. They usually reach sexual maturity at: 2 years

Crows are considered to be very intelligent creatures and have existed since a long time due to their ability to adapt to changing situations. They belong to the corvid family of birds and are highly adaptable to any kind of situation. Crows are migratory birds and assemble in huge groups in order to migrate during autumn and winter, since they cannot stand harsh climate. A group of crows is called as ‘murder’!

They are known to be both beneficial as well as a nuisance for farmers. Though they eat up a number of pests that may destroy crops like cutworms, wireworms, grasshoppers, noxious weeds, Etc. They are also known to destroy a large number of crops by pecking on them, their favourite being corn!

In some areas, crows are regularly shot for despoiling farmers’ fields. Scarecrows, cats and many other tactics have been used to keep them away but because of their intelligence they can quickly outwit most traps. Any scarecrow which remains in the same place for several days quickly becomes a perch, rather than a warning sign.

This Corvidae family includes all the ‘Crow’ type birds; others include Magpies, Jays, Nutcrackers and Ravens. The family emerged in the middle Miocene period (23.7–5.3 million years ago).

Crows nests are bulky structures built in trees or bushes. They are made of twigs, lined with bark, grasses and rootlets.

The female lays 4–7 eggs in the nest and the male helps incubate them. These eggs are greenish or bluish and blotched with brown. Once hatched, the young remain in the nest 6–8 weeks and in their early life they eat almost half of their weight per day in food, which the parents bring to them.

Whilst raising their young, crows are not very gregarious (sociable) creatures. However, they are migratory and will assemble in large flocks in the fall, to travel south.

Crows range all over Australia and most of the rest of the planet some species or another can be found (except for the arctic regions). They are not restricted to a particular habitat and can easily breed and survive in mountains, woodlands, plains, farms & fields as well as modern urban areas.

Corvus is the classification especially for ravens and crows. Within this genus are different species of both but their scientific names all start with ‘Corvus’. They got the name from the deep-throated ‘croak’ which is their distinctive call.

Crows are generally black, with black beaks and legs but they can also be black with white, gray or brown colouring. The common crow (Corvus Brachyrhynchos) is approximately 20-30cm (8-12ins) long, with a wingspan double that. Their strong and sharp beaks help them rummage for food from almost anywhere. Thirty-One species of crow exist.

Crows are omnivorous - they will eat anything edible and many things which aren’t. Their regular diet includes animal and vegetable matter, insects, crops (especially corn) and occasionally the eggs or young of other birds.
