The House Crow is a common bird of the Crow family that is of Asian origin. It is an omnivorous, scavenger bird and opportunistic feeder. A very intelligent species, the House Crow is always alert and wary, walking or hopping along the ground with its wings flicking all the time. House Crow lives in large, close-knit families, and, like social mammals, they not only hunt and forage together but also defend territories and care for the young together. Its scientific name means “shining raven”, and refers to the glossy, jet-black feathers on the face, crown, chin and throat.
