Subject: [MASSBIRD] Winter Crow Roost: videos and blog updates!
Greetings all,

The action around the Winter Crow Roost continues to be dazzling!

First, you are invited to check out to short recent YouTube videos that help to appreciate this remarkable avian spectacle!

Working with an FAA certified drone pilot with all proper clearances, we explored the extended roost area during the staging process as the Crows were still moving around and had not yet converged into the overnight roost area. Every effort was made to follow strict drone conservation biology standards for this type of activity. Well worth a look!

Second, don't miss this two minute video from last night where we experienced some of the most dramatic scenes during the staging process and while the Crows were vocalizing and streaming towards the overnight roost, as we well as infrared video segments near the end showing an after dark staging area and then a scan along the roost trees with an infrared illuminator!
