My dear readers if you knew me in my undergraduate days, you would have found an aspiring David Attenborough, or at least an aspiring naturalist. As a part of my bachelors in biology I was required to conduct a research project; I elected to study crow roosting behavior. This entailed spending several evenings in the winter of my junior and senior years with my friend “J” chasing crows around Alta, Iowa. We would track the crows’ movement via video to each new grouping of trees. We also monitored the light level and wind speed.
I thought I would share with you one of my adventures while shooting (videotaping) crows. Don’t worry its not the whole evening, only 2 minutes worth. Enjoy this amateur, never- before-seen footage!
