Identification

POWERED BY MERLIN

A large omnivorous species that occupies a wide range of habitats including agricultural fields, but prefers wet upland woods. Appears all black; the namesake white neck feathers are only visible during courtship. Note its bright red eyes. The only other large black species sharing its range is the Palm Crow, which has dark eyes and is a bit smaller. Additionally, the White-necked Crow has a relatively long, pointed bill with limited feathering atop when compared with that of the Palm Crow. This species vocalizations are remarkably parrotlike and rather unlike those of other crows. Calls include an upward inflected, rolling, and drawn out “wreh,” usually given in series as well as a variety of shrill burbling or gobbling sounds.
