This section includes reports of various observers from the State of Indiana.

NW Indiana USA: May 12, 2001

Observing crows working as a pair attempting to steal newly hatched robins from nest under eave above deck. We live in a city subdivision with our city lotlandscaped to serve as a "bird sanctuary". One crow stole a baby robin but dropped it. We were able to return it to its nest where the parent robins have resumed its care.

Indianapolis, Indiana, U.S.A.: January 31, 2001

Found your website while looking for information on corvus brachyrhynchos, as I recently moved into an urban neighborhood and found that there are lots and lots of crows. Well, the other morning, while taking the garbage out I saw that for blocks around, the trees were full, the sky was black with movement and the noise was a cachophony as they left their roost. Driving to work, I drove through my new neighborhood for about 5 blocks square and every tree was filled with crows and ravens, possibly, as some of them were quite large. I am not an adovcate for getting rid of them as I know them to be intelligent creatures, but am curious about why so many. Your website gave a grand explanation. Yesterday was Tuesday which is garbage pickup and the roaming packs of dogs tear open the bags therefore providing easy pickings for these birds throughout the city. The dogs are another issue. The crows are fine with me, but shades of the movie the BIRDS. Thanks for hearing my story. This a.m. there were two birds flying over my house when I left for work, no large flocks to be seen. A mystery. (Loyce Stultz)
