Stuck in Vermont: Crow Safari With Teage O’Connor in Burlington 

Episode 605

Published February 20, 2020 at 6:00 a.m.

Naturalist and educator Teage O’Connor has been counting crows in Burlington for the past 12 years. During the winter months, thousands of birds flock to Burlington from the surrounding towns to roost together overnight. You can often see them between the hours of 4 and 6 p.m., traveling in large numbers and filling the trees. These urban roosts are becoming more common across the country, and the crows can make quite a ruckus when they land in a residential neighborhood.

Eva joined Teage on one of his crow safaris, first on foot through Centennial Woods, then by car to Riverside Avenue and, eventually, to the University of Vermont campus, where the birds settled down for the night. Drone photographer James Buck also followed the birds by air on a few different evenings to get a bird's-eye view.

Shooting date: 2/10/20

Music: Unicorn Heads, “A Mystical Experience” & “Generations Away”
