Identification

POWERED BY MERLIN

All-black crow with an unusually slender bill. Found in a wide variety of open country habitats, including desert, dry savanna, montane grassland, and cultivation. Usually in pairs or small flocks; feeds by walking along the ground. Common call is a typical of crows: a gruff caw. Also gives variable rasping and bubbling vocalizations. The slim bill separates it from all other crows in its range. Lacks the gray neck and breast of House Crow.
