After speaking with Barbara Volkle I have been given permission to email you all to ask for your co-operation in a research project I am conducting into American crows.
The study is in 2 parts the first of which involves recording sightings of Americam crows (corvus brachyrhynchos) in *Essex county*. As well as recording sightings I am interested in hearing about your observations of what these birds do, their individual and social behaviours.
I am a life long birder and a Massachusetts birder with an interest in bird behavior and also in how we interact with birds. As well as working at Emerson College, here in Boston, I work at Cambridge university (UK) in the corvid research centre. I thank you all in advance for your help in this project.
