Fish Crow (Corvus ossifragus)

General Description: Fish Crows (Corvus ossifragus) are all black with a purplish gloss in good light. Fish Crows are similar to American Crows, but Fish Crows have a smaller head, smaller bill, longer tail, and stiffer wingbeats. Best separated by voice, which, to this Yankee, sounds like a nasal southern drawl compared to American Crows.

Taxonomy: Passeriformes, Corvidae.

Favored Habitat: Primarily coastal areas; also inland, especially along rivers.
