American Crow caw calls and extreme closeup of the features of these amazing birds. These are deep forest crows that live in a family unit. They are typically very difficult to capture on camera in the forest cover. Here they are checking out the remains of a corn feeder the Chipmunks have finished off - a lucky capture! A note on crows - they are extremely social and intelligent birds and are protected by the Migratory Bird Treaty Act, a federal act resulting from a formal treaty signed by the United States, Canada, and Mexico and they can not be indiscriminately killed. Individual states may require permits to control crows and may regulate the method of take. Federal guidelines permit states to establish hunting seasons for crows. During these seasons, crows may be hunted according to the regulations established in each state. Regulations or interpretation of depredation rules may vary among states, and state or local laws may prohibit certain control techniques such as shooting or trapping. Check with local wildlife officials if there is any doubt regarding legality of control methods.
