About Crows

Photo by Kevin J. McGowan

All birds of the genus Corvus are known as "crows" and are songbirds in the corvid family.  While there are 40 or so species of crows in the world, we focus on the American crow (Corvus brachyrhynchos) and fish crow (Corvus ossifragus).  However, the majority of our study birds are of the American variety and you can expect that they are the species we are usually talking about on this website.

In the interest of not trying to re-invent the wheel we'd like to direct you toward information pages that are Crow Research Group approved!

We also highly recommend the Birds of North America entry on crows.  However, BNA requires a membership with AOU or a subscription to view.
