Western Scrub-Jay by Giedt Hall

The crow family (Corvidae) has over 100 different types of birds. Common features include an elongated beak, shortened or curled tail, and four well-developed toes. Generally considered to be intelligent birds. These birds are omnivorous.

We also see some crow migration in Davis.
