Said to avoid unbroken expanses of forest Common Crow Habitat Country Habitat This type of macaw prefers moderately dense rain forests
commonly found close to souses of water such as rivers and swamps
Macaws habitat is highly threatened due to development, deforestation and capture. Climate Macaws prefer warmer humid climates for their living conditions Climate Crows prefer more moderate temperatures. Neither extreme heat or extreme cold.
They may migrate during the coldest months of their region but do not travel far Landforms Live in wetlands/lowlands Rainforest where Macaws would live Habitat/Landforms Country They are found in different parts of California, Mexico and Kansas They live in deserts like the Mojave, Sonora, Great Basin and Chihuahus.
Prefer flat open plains or grasslands with =some scattered brush and a few bushes for covering and nesting The climate is that of a dry tropical climate
Referred to as the "Desert Biome"

Retrieved November 18, 2012, from http://www.torontozoo.com/ExploretheZoo/AnimalDetails.asp?pg=543 A macaw and a Crow would not be well adjusted for each others biomes. The colourful traits of the Macaw would not work well in the Crows environment. It would be hard for the Macaw to find safe shelter where it would not be found by predators in the thin forests that the crows live in. The temperature differences between the two biomes would also make it hard for the birds to adjust. The Macaws wouldn't be able to withstand the colder temperatures that crows are used to and the Crows wouldn't be able to withstand the intense heat that Macaws are suited for. Natural selection would occur in this process. The Macaw would not be well suited enough for Crows environment and end up dieing off. They wouldn't be able to find food because they have a diet of strictly seeds and nuts.
The crows may survive because they can scavenge for food and withstand constantly changing temperatures.
