An Illustred Life List: American Crow

I love watching crows, especially in the winter time.  Last week I saw a group of crows seemingly playing in the fresh snow while driving to work along Victor Memorial Parkway in Minneapolis.  Some of them were perched on a very skinny branch that hanging almost vertically, others were in the snow below.  They were very active with their cawing and flapping.  Maybe there was something good to eat under the snow.  Maybe they were just having fun.

Corvid quiz: name three species of birds that could be easily misidentified as an American Crow in North America, and name a state or province were they would be found.  This is a closed book (physically and virtually speaking) quiz.
