I went with Patti Steinman of Mass Audubon Arcadia Sanctuary to Springfield to monitor the American Crow roost. She has been monitoring it for 17 years now and has observed them in many different locations over the years. We located them at the Lower Van Horn Reservoir on Cunningham St. just behind Bay State Hospital. We estimate between 10,000 & 12,000 American Crows with some Fish Crows in the group (identified by vocalization).
