Johnny Wee photographed a pair of house crow (Corvus splendens) nesting on a palm tree in Ang Mo Kio Industrial Park. A very young chick is in the nest. House crows typically lay 3-5 eggs in a clutch. In the Handbook of the Birds of the World vol. 14 © 2009 p.550, older crows and crow pairs which have helpers tend to raise larger broods. Kelvin SH Peh and Navjot S. Sodhi (2002), authors of Characteristics of Nocturnal Roosts of House Crows in Singapore in the Journal of Wildlife Management 66(4):1128-1133 reported that crows tend to prefer areas high in human activity and close to food sources.
