I predict that the first time most people notice that big flocks of crows are back in town will be during evening rush hour on Monday November 5.

Can you guess why?

    Because of the time change….they will heading to their roosting area earlier?

    Yes. The crows will be on the same schedule. They go to the roost at sunset; rush hour will now be at sunset too.

    I have my camera and tripod at the ready …. the strip district at around 20th st and up on Bigelow by the “French Fry” statue are 2 of the best places to see it (there’s a service road in that little parklet)

    Thanks for that information.On election day I witnessed what looked like 400 crows squawking and flying like they were going somewhere special. It was 5:30PM near Negley Ave. in Pittsburgh. I wondered where they were headed it was amazing. From reading I hear that they gather to roost probably now I see heading to polish hill to those safe trees. Just amazing. I was joking that they were going to vote…
