Subject: [VTBIRD] Crow question
For the past month crow behavior in the residential areas surrounding Champlain College has been far different; they are frequenting feeders (in my yard they hang upside down while devouring suet). I've heard anecdotes from other suburban areas (Colchester, Shelburne, S. Burl) from people who say the feeder raiding is a new behavior in their yards too. In my neighborhood for at least 7 years we've had evening roosts of several hundred crows throughout the year; but it's the casual strolling through the yards and emptying the feeders that appears to be new. Any information on what's causing this??? Nancy Goodrich, Burl.
