Crows at the Roost, Pittsburgh

Published by at 10:37 pm under Crows, Ravens


Sharon Leadbitter captured this video of thousands of crows about to roost near 21st Street in the Strip District this evening, December 9.

There’s nothing like thousands of birds to get the heart started.  Thank you, Sharon for sending this along!

    A thing of beauty! I think the crows just show off because they know we want to fly! Love the moon being captured by Sharon. Nice job!

    Wow! You have talked about the huge flocks in our area before, but seeing this video still had me wide-eyed. Thanks, Kate and Sharon!

    Sharon, thanks for the video. i’ve been able to watch these crows from the traffic jam on the crosstown and vets bridge all week! and last night a subset of them crossed the river and were flying over the North Side for a while. so cool! Maybe Dori or Louie feasted on crow this week…

    I absolutely love crows … so smart!!!
    I thought it was rather funny how many people at the bus stop were getting a little freaked out from the crows ….. either that or “that crazy lady again with her camera” …. LOL

    Send some over to North Versailles. Spotted another one of the adult peregrines there shortly after 4 this afternoon. Perched on a light post on the Forest Hills side of the Westinghouse Bridge. S/he looked alert for crow :-)
