Behavior

Introduction

There is very little reported about the behavior of Sinaloa Crow; presumably it is similar to the behavior of crows (Corvus) in general, and to that of Tamaulipas Crow (Corvus imparatus) in particular.

Sinaloa Crows forage at all strata, from the ground into the canopy (Parker et al. 1996).

Territoriality

There are no published data on home range size or on territorial defense, maintenance, or fidelity for Sinaloa Crow.

Sexual Behavior

Undescribed. Sinaloa Crow presumbably is at least socially monogramous.

Social and interspecific behavior

Sinaloa Crow often occurs in flocks outside the breeding season, in groups of up to 125 individuals (Russell and Monson 1998). Also occurs in pairs and small groups (Howell and Webb 1995).

Predation

No reports of predation on Sinaloa Crow?
