Birds of a Feather — Why Crows Congregate in Winter
This time of year, there’s an evening spectacle taking place in treetops in cities, towns and around the countryside. Hundreds, and in some cases thousands, of crows are congregating in winter roosts.
Many of them are local birds that will go on to raise extended families in suburban backyards and nearby woodlots. Others are migrants from as far away as Canada who will return home once spring arrives to stay. Either way, the crows create an impressive sight and sound around Lewiston and Auburn.
