Abstract

We report predation by an American Crow (Corvus brachyrhynchos) of a bat in flight. We observed an aerial attack of a little brown bat (Myotis lucifugus) by a crow, followed by consumption of the prey item. American Crows are reported to have a wide variety of foraging strategies and food items; consumption of bats, in general, has not been reported among them.
