There are several ancestral “clans” of Crow living and socializing here on Fishers Island. While over the years I have been intrigued with their routines and take note, admittedly I find the birds are really keeping an eye on all of us. You’ll find West End groups on The Green across from Our Lady of Grace church, around Hay Harbor Club’s driveway and my own neighbors (9 of them!) within the Parade Grounds. I’ve read Crows can have a 20-year life span…that’s a lot of Ferries to greet….
