Cuban Crow

A stocky, medium sized forest crow, this sociable bird can be found quite commonly over most of the large island of Cuba and on the nearby Isla de la Juventud in woodland and areas that have been cleared for agriculture. It is frequently found around farms and villages where it seems to have adapted quite well to living in relatively close contact with man.

The Cuban Crow is classified as Least Concern. Does not qualify for a more at risk category. Widespread and abundant taxa are included in this category.

The Cuban Crow (Corvus nasicus) is one of four species of crow that occur on a few key islands in the Caribbean. It is closely related to the White-necked Crow (C. leucognaphalis) and Jamaican Crow (C. jamaicensis), with which it shares similar features. The fourth Caribbean crow, the Palm Crow (C. palmarum), is a later arrival in evolutionary terms and shows characteristics more akin to North American species such as the Fish Crow (C. ossifragus), which it is probably closely related to.

site for Cuban Crows, one of the rare endemic species we had come to find. It was amazing to see the crows looking for royal palm fruits and investigating nesting sites in the trees. In the afternoon hundreds and hundreds of them came to perch and spend the night. In the morning they would take off again. They are very social crows, and gathering in large numbers is crucial for them to be able to find mates and resources. More
