Anatomy: The crow is an all-black bird about 18-22 inches (45-56 cm) long. It has a square-shaped tail and pointed wings.
Diet: The American crow is an omnivore; it eats plants and animals. It eats insects, grains, fruit, other birds' eggs, and small land and aquatic animals.
Eggs and Nests: The crow's nest is a cup of twigs and sticks lined with grass, bark, pine needles, and moss. Nests are located high in a tree or utility pole. Eggs are bluish-greenish marked with brown and gray. Females lay 3-7 eggs in each clutch (a set of eggs laid at one time). Both parents incubate the eggs, which hatch in about 17 days. The young are able to fly in roughly 3 weeks.
