Crows are omnivores.
Crows are omnivores.

An omnivore (from Latin: omne all, everything; vorare to devour) is a species of animal that eats both plants and animals as its primary food source. They are opportunistic, general feeders not specifically adapted to eat and digest either meat or plant material exclusively.[1] Pigs are one well-known example of an omnivore.[2] Crows are another example of an omnivore that many people see every day.[3] Humans themselves are omnivores.

Michael Pollan - The Omnivore's Dilemma (658 words)
The omnivore’s dilemma has returned with a vengeance, as the cornucopia of the modern American supermarket and fast-food outlet confronts us with a bewildering and treacherous food landscape.
In this groundbreaking book, one of America’s most fascinating, original, and elegant writers turns his own omnivorous mind to the seemingly straightforward question of what we should have for dinner.
To find out, Pollan follows each of the food chains that sustain us—industrial food, organic or alternative food, and food we forage ourselves—from the source to a final meal, and in the process develops a definitive account of the American way of eating.
Omnivore - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (199 words)
An omnivore (from Latin: omnis all; vorare to devour) is an animal that eats both plants and meat.
Omnivores lack the specialist behaviour of carnivores and herbivores, searching widely for food sources, and are thus better able to withstand changes within their ecological niche.
The digestive systems of omnivores reflect their versatility: they are able to digest the cellulose of plants in the manner of herbivores but also readily assimilate protein and other nutrients from meat [1].
