The warm, humid climate of central Florida provides ideal habitat for American Crows year-round. Average temperatures range from the 60s°F (15°C) in north Florida to the 70s°F (21°C) in south Florida. While freezing weather is rare, cool winter temperatures limit insect food. Annual rainfall averages 50-65 inches (1270-1650 mm), supporting dense vegetation.
Native oak hammocks, pine flatwoods, swamps, and coastal mangroves provide nesting sites and cover. Nearby rural pastures, crops, landfills, and urban areas offer plentiful food. American Crows adapt readily to human development and artificial food sources like trash bins and bird feeders. They are abundant generalists across the region in both pristine and degraded habitats.
