We counted 1,045 crows flying over our postage stamp yard a block north of the Alameda ridge in NE Portland last night between 8:07 and 8:47 PM. We can see less than a block's worth of sky with the buildings around us, so this is a tiny fraction of the total crow commute. We don't often conduct a thorough count of this daily commute, but the last high count I remember was about 4 years ago when we counted 525. Not very scientific, but it appears crow numbers are increasing in Portland.
