Sounds of the American Crow
Shortcut: caaaw caaaw
Song: Basic call is a raucous, throaty caaaw caaaw caaaw with subtle variations between individuals.
Call: In addition to repeated caaaw calls, a rattling call in a series of clicks is delivered as birds bob up and down with visual displays. Other calls include a rattling krrackow, and a soft bell-toned woh-woh, woh-woh.
