Thanks to all who responded to my request for info about winter crow roosts in VA. As I said, I've become involved in a national effort to locate reliable roosts. One reason we're trying to do this, and some of you may know this: these roosts are being used as educational tools to teach kids, especially urban kids, about birds, wildlife,and nature. Crows are considered "contact points" or "gateways to learning" about the natural world. Kids are learning about crows in schools, afterschool programs, Boys and Girls Clubs, etc. And they're getting excited about what they're learning (and hopefully some are getting excited about birds in general!). So the info you provide is really important and helpful.
