A large, all-black, gregarious species of woodlands, scrub, and palm savannahs; often found in flocks of up to fifty birds. Note this species’ somewhat stout bill with extensive feathering on top. It shares portions of its range with two rather similar species, the White-necked and the Cuban Crow, both of which have longer bills with less extensive feathering on top. Additionally, the White-necked Crow is a bit larger and has red (not dark) eyes. Vocalizations are predominantly a flat, harsh “raaah,” which is rather different from any of the various calls of White-necked and Cuban Crows.
