Out on solo Crow Patrol with short time window to view one of the staging areas. The general area around Industrial Way continues to be a reliable location to look for staging Crows, especially 90 minutes prior to sunset. Upon arrival, observed small numbers flying into area from the south and Crows were seen perched in trees, milling around on the pavement and on grassy areas around the Simpsons Automotive building;

Crows also seen a bit farther to the west between Simpsons and Bulfinch Drive. Offered up a healthy pile of in shell peanuts to the great delight of the Crows;

after backing away, they converged and snatched up the peanuts! Dana and Bob called in for update as they prepared to set out on Crow Patrol!
