The 2 species of nutcracker are peculiar to the crow family. One foot in length, the
nutcracker differs from the common crow as it has brown plumage gently decorated with white
spots. The nutcracker has a short tail, broad wings and a strong bill which is a highly
effective tool. The nutcracker uses its beak to break open coniferous cones to feed on the
seeds. The European nutcracker is found in pine forests throughout Europe and Asia, while
Clark's nutcracker is found in North America. Both share many similarities.
