Where Are The Crows Of Minneapolis’ Elliot Park?

It’s a mystery.

Nearly every day in December as the sun was setting, a long column of crows commuting from somewhere would circle the Downtown East neighborhood of Minneapolis next to the Metrodome.

Hundreds, actually maybe thousands of them.

They raised a huge ruckus, talking crow talk, apparently jockeying for position, and then they settled into the trees in Elliot park at the very tips of the branches.

Others have commented on this. Where are the crows now? Have you seen them?

    I think they’ve moved a tiny bit south…lots are hanging out in Phelps Park (I live right across the street), and I’ve seen and heard the influx from 28th to 40th along Park Ave! It’s astounding.

    Yep, they’ve definitely moved south! In the last few days I’ve noticed a lot of crows hanging out at 26th Street and Park Avenue, right by the American Swedish Institute.
