Celebration of the Winter Crow Roost
January 10 @ 12:00 am - March 12 @ 12:00 am
Essex Art Center celebrates the annual return of thousands of American Crows and Fish Crows to Lawrence for their winter roost. Just before sunset the crows stream in from their daytime foraging grounds. They roost together overnight in one large group of over 23,000 crows. This natural phenomenon – observed by many, yet understood by few – begins in October and continues through early April when the crows return to their breeding grounds. Come join us as we celebrate the crows through art and writing and be sure to go out and see the crows massing.
