Fish Crows (adult and juvenile) - probable breeding area - July 10, 2019 at Sandpiper Cove, Polk Co. IA. I saw what looked to be a small crow in the dead branches of the larger tree in the holding basin just NE of the Boat Ramp. A little later after asking a jet skier to check on some girls that has swam out too far on Saylorville Lake I spotted a full size adult crow a block away feeding on something atop a parking lot light pole. It flew to the same spot I'd seen the juvenile which was behind the live part of the tree out of my sight. I drove to a better location and took pictures and video which I think will confirm Fish Crow! The Crow then flew over to the Marina where I looked for it again without success.
