Crows Roosting in MinneapolisPosted by Kirk Mona
I was recently interviewed on WCCO talking about all of the crows roosting in Minneapolis.
The winter roost is really incredible to witness. You can head into the city in the evening, grab some dinner and watch thousands of crows coming into the city. They come because the city parks are well lit and make a good place to watch out for Great Horned Owls. Crows have always grouped up in the winter to communicate as well. Since the 1960s though these small winter roosts have come together into mega roosts. It a a fascinating new adaptation and not one we are likely to see go away.
