American Crow

Corvus brachryhynchos - Well known, easily recognized, and abundant in the West except in arid regions. Told from a distant hawk by its frequent steady flapping. Seldom glides more than 2-3 seconds except in strong updrafts or when descending. Barely smaller than a Red Tailed Hawk. Call is a distinctive caw. Because of its size it tends to bully the other birds. But the other birds seem to be patient and wait it out.
