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. Marie Marie Read

I have little to add and nothing to correct in Dave' nice summary. Crows in and around Ithaca usually choose among several modest roosts (500-5,000 crows). Some years the main Ithaca roost is hardly noticeable, and in others it's in your face. The crows typically stage on the Cornell and

The crow hunting season is a New York State DEC policy. It doesn't make sense to me. I don't think people eat them. There are other DEC policies about killing animals that are damaging farm crops outside of hunting seasons, I believe. I think the policies of Auburn were to try to deter the birds,

I've seen photos of them showing off their kills-it's not to feed their families. I knew I misspoke when I said that Auburn instituted the policy. They are utilizing the policy. But, you are correct when you say that Auburn has also tried to scare them away. This is a link to press coverage

Actually there is an open season for crow hunting, 1 Sept. to 31 Mar.. I think the 1st yr. we heard so much flap about hunting them that about 200+- crows were actually killed. Supposedly, it was last yr., ( I doubt it) that on one weekend, as per a newspaper article, about 150 hunters killed
