American Crow, Corvus caurinus
The crow is a common resident of Suburbia. He differs from the Raven by having a straight tail and ;normal; beak.
many years ago on a job in Malibu I noticed the only birds left were crows and introduced parrots. (I guess the birds reflect the Hollywood influence?)
Crows range through most of the US and Southern Canada. When they get together for their conventions their mob can number in the millions.
Crows will eat almost anything and collect anything that attracts their attention.
