The Language of Crows (the Bird)

photo by Walter Siegmund

We often have a large murder of crows (American crows Corvus brachyrhynchos) in our 'yard' and I am always amazed by the extent of their language. After casually observing them for awhile, you get an idea what they are 'saying', but I am certainly no scientist.

For those who have always wondered what crows are going on about, here are a few interesting webbys.

Thought you might want to know about our new book, "The Language of Crows: The Book of the American Crow". You can find info on it at It contains everything most folks ever wanted to know about crows. Michael Westerfield,
