About the Clark's Nutcracker

Also known as: Clark's Crow, Woodpecker Crow
The Clark's Nutcracker is a species of corvid found in western parts of North America. The species is found in pine mountain forests and other mountain habitats.

Clark's Nutcrackers feed on pine seeds. They eat them fresh from trees but also cache the seeds for later consumption.

Like many species in the corvid family, Clark's Nutcrackers are known to be gregarious. They often travel in small flocks and may also forage for seeds alongside other species.
