Fish Crow

About the Fish Crow

The Fish Crow is a species of corvid that lives in eastern and southeastern parts of the United States. This species is superficially similar to the American Crow, though it is smaller. The Fish Crow has a very different call from the American Crow; vocalization is often the only way these two similar dark birds can be told apart.

Fish Crows are endemic to the United States.
