Working on my blog, I serendipitously wrote a post today about the Fish
Crow. ( http://dantallmansbirdblog.blogspot.com ) Come to discover that
Fish Crows are found up the Mississippi Valley to St. Louis and
accidentally into southern Ontario! Fish Crows are moving north. Twice
this fall I saw or heard odd crows. One was noticeably small but not
obviously young. Another time I heard crows call like a Fish Crow--this
was in Updown near 47th street or so. At the time, not knowing that a Fish
Crow was remotely possible, I wrote the calls off as off-pitch American
No way I am listing these! But we should be on the alert. The two species
are so similar, I am somewhat puzzled as to how one would tell them apart
here in Minnesota. I have Fish and American crow calls on the blog.
