Default Crows starting to flock back?

Crows starting to flock back?

Crows starting to flock back? :: CHICAGO SUN-TIMES :: Lifestyles
excerpt from above:
Quote:
Lee Ramsey, a retiree who volunteers for the Bird Conservation Network, keeps a feeder in his backyard, a once-popular destination for crows in winter.

Although Ramsey hasn't seen a single crow in his yard in Northfield for the last few years, he has hope they are on their way...

This winter was the first time I saw crows in my neighborhood. I didn't realize that the West Vile virus had be lowering there numbers. I don't remember crows every being that common.

We never lack for them here, although it doies seem that they are getting considerably larger. My building has a flat rubber roof and we live on the top floor. When they hop across our roof it's loud enough to wake you up. Quite annoying but also kind of cool, too.

I had a bunch of them -- I think crows, very large birds -- in my pecan trees a few weeks ago. They were chattering and making a racket. A lot of them--hundreds of them. I felt like I was in The Birds movie. They stayed for the afternoon but were gone the next day.
