SPECIES INFO

Distribution and habitat

It ranges over western and central Australia, often inhabiting very dry, near desert areas. It frequents small country towns and cultivated areas, where its flocks have reminded people of the European Rook.

Behaviour Diet

Its food is mainly taken from the ground and includes insects, cereals and other seeds. It is less of a scavenger or carrion feeder than the other Australian species.

Nesting

It usually nests in small, loose colonies, building stick nests lined with mud (the only Australian species to do this).

Voice

Its voice is a "nark-nark-nark-nark". It also has a more typical crow-like "kah-kah-kah" call.
