Natural World of Southern Vancouver Island through the lens of Captain Yves- Part 3
The Northwestern Crow is VERY similar to the American Crow and it is very difficult to differentiate one from the other! However, this can be done if you have an expert ear.
It is possible that these two species species may hybridize.
Northwestern Crows often forage in coastal habitats of the Pacific Northwest, including tidal flats, in seabird colonies, and along rivers and estuaries.
“They hide their food and remember where it is. When I was young my neighbor had one, it was tame and it could talk! At least 10 words as I recall ” -Captain Yves
