Sept. 27, 2021: mostly cloudy, wind S at 5MPH, temp 69F
Out on Crow Patrol with initial stops along east end of Merrimack Street, then heading westward with little action. Headed to top of the McGovern parking garage and observed a dribble of Crows starting to stream in, with a small group assembling at the west end of B&D Warehouse roof top.
With more Crows gathering around the south end of the Casey Bridge, made my way over to that area. Observed mostly Fish Crows coming in and mulling on the ground and settling in, close together, on the utility wires, with lots of vocalizations.
Moved over to the adjacent New Balance parking lot, and observed Fish Crows vocalizing and mulling around, while lifting up in flight if any loud noises like the train whistle or a loud motorcycle.
Finally, noticed a tight scrum of mostly Fish Crows, on the ground and in the nearby grassy area. Another enjoyable outing!
