Appearing on the June 1st edition of the weekly local public affairs program, Southern Tier Close Up, Binghamton University Associate Professor of Biological Sciences, Anne Clark answers the question she most frequently is asked: ‘Why crows?!’

Dr. Clark studies a wide range of topics involving crows from their social structure to the urbanization of the birds.

Clark says how the American Crow deals with the stress of becoming city birds may be able to help humans adapt to stressful situations.

This spring, Cark and some students have been climbing trees to place baby crows into buckets that are lowered to the ground.  the chicks are banded, the lifted back up to their nests.

Did you know during the outbreak of the West Nile Virus, crow families would step in and adopt young birds that had been orphaned?  Many more facinating facts about crows are discussed by Dr. Clark on the program.

Southern Tier Close Up airs Saturdays at 12:10 p.m. on News Radio 1290 WNBF.
