An American crow, photographed at the @suttoncenter, whose mission is finding cooperative conservation solutions for birds and the natural world through science and education.
A familiar face to many of us, crows can be seen all throughout the United States, Canada and Mexico. They are considered one of the most intelligent bird species, thriving not only in forests, orchards and fields, but also in suburbs and inner cities. They’re opportunistic hunters, feeding on anything from worms to seeds to human food scraps. The American crow is extremely sociable, gathering in familial groups to feed, roost and protect their territory. They are cooperative breeders, all members of the group aiding parents in raising and protecting their young.

It's estimated that over 90% of seabirds will have ingested some sort of plastic by 2050. How will I explain this to my children... Thankfully making a difference is in #ourhands start with something simple- bring a reusable bottle!
