several hundred crows streaming north, approaching Porter Road at the Track and Field Complex from the south, passing over the track and heading north over Main street.
Estimated 500 - 550 American Crows (could be more) moving from the SW to North along Otter Creek Wooded line and staging just north of EastView Retirement cottages and Inn to opposite and just north of Porter Hospital.
Seemed to congregate together, then groups flew up and continued to fly toward the Marble Works where they have been known to roost in the past several years.
Only watched from 1630 to 1715.
