The most adaptable and intelligent birds.
American crow (Corvus brachyrhynchos)
North American crows use to be their name but this past year they have decided to be done with the North American crow and go with American crow. North American crows are part of the Corvidae family along with ravens, jays, magpies,rooks,and jackdaws.
Crows are omnivorous this means they obtain their nutrients through plants and animal matter, digest carbohydrates, protein, fat, and fiber, and metabolize the nutrients and energy of the sources absorbed. Omnivores include bears, raccoons, humans, ants and squirrels. Omnivores can thrive in almost any environment with this kind of adaptability unlike herbivores or carnivores.
Crows are Passeriformes. Commonly called passerines (PASS-ur-eenz) it is a group of birds that has three toes that point forward and one that points backward called the hallux (HAL-lux). The way their toes are arranged helps them with perching on narrow structures like wire fences and well almost anything they can wrap there feet around. Other passerine includes finches, flycatchers, nightingales, swallows, tanagers, vireos, shrikes, wrens, and warblers. Passeriformes also have a unique avian vocal organ called the syrinx (SIHR-ingks) located at the base of a bird’s trachea near there heart. From what I have read it is connected to the back of there tongue to the bones that connect to there arms. For anyone who knows about how crows make this certain sounds this actually makes sense cause of the way they point there head down and vocalize.
