The American Crow is a common black bird. It is said to be very smart because of the fact they are able to communicate with each over great distance to warn each other of predators. The American Crow is a scavenger; this means it placed into a different category of animal life style. It eats the decomposing animals from the ground such as road kill or kills from other animals that will not touch. If a crow spots a predator like a hawk, they will sound a alarm to other crows and they will group together in hopes of chase of the predator. American Crows will also follow land animals, such as wolfs, in hopes of sharing the scraps from its kill.
