Biology

The diet is varied and consists mainly of fruit, but insects and nectar may also be eaten (3). The Hawaiian crow flakes away bark whilst foraging for insects and has also been observed raiding the nests of other bird species. Breeding occurs between March and July (3) - the bulky nests are made of sticks with a cup of soft grasses inside, and are usually located in large trees in isolated stands (5). A clutch can contain between one and five eggs (3). The flight style is strong, and they have been seen tumbling and playing in the air like ravens (5).
