    Crows are members of the genus Corvus and smaller than the Ravens. Crows are considered to be among the world's most intelligent animals. Crows are omnivorous and they will eat almost anything, including other birds, fruits, nuts, mollusks, earthworms, seeds, frogs, eggs, nestlings, mice and carrion. Crows are seen in larger groups. The crow’s tail feathers are basically the same length, so when the bird spreads its tail, it opens like a fan. Crows give a cawing sound.

I don't know if I like cats, bats and ravens because they are traditionally associated with witchcraft, or because they are beautiful and intelligent creatures...

The “caw” of crows and ravens were always the alarm clock and the sound makes me smile still today. I’ve always thought they were given such a bad rap, not to mention they have incredible reasoning abilities.
