Pittsburgh’s crows are back!
The winter flock is building. Hundreds gathered last evening near Bigelow Boulevard at Craig Street. As sunlight faded in the western sky they left to roost … where?
This morning Tony Bledsoe dodged the “rain” from their roost in the trees near Clapp Hall. His guess at the size of the flock? 500. And this is just the beginning. By November they’ll build to a crescendo of crows.
Where do they gather at dusk? Leave a comment with the news … or tweet me the location of Pittsburgh’s crow flock @KStJBirdblog (hashtag #pghcrows)
