About a week ago, I'm pretty sure I heard a fish crow in my yard on
Shelburne Road not far from Price Chopper, which is not all that far
from Red Rocks Park.  At the time there were a few crows on the lawn
and I could not tell for sure which one it was though one seemed
slightly smaller than the others.  My dog leaves his bones outside and
the crows like to come and clean them off.  Jo Ann Lafayette
