I happened to be driving to Rochester through Geneva a week ago at dusk, and 
there was a huge roost (or pre-roost staging area) of crows gathering in the 
park at the north end of Seneca Lake too. Thousands of crows silhouetted in the 
trees at sunset. Very cool to watch.

This is only my second winter in Ithaca (I'm a grad student, here from the 
southeast) so I don't really know how normal this is- but there seem to be an 
ENORMOUS number of crows around downtown Ithaca and Cornell- swirling at dusk, 
covering roofs, nearly toppling trees, blotting out the sun, etc.

Can someone in the know let me know what's going on? Are these all birds 
passing through, or is there some sort of monumental attack on the Lab of O in 
the works?
