Fish Crow(s) - Algonquin Park

*This report was originally posted by Lev Frid on ONTBIRDS (May 1, 2018) and is provided here with the kind permission of the Ontario Field Ornithologists.

Hi folks,

There is at least one, possibly two, Fish Crows at the Old Airfield in
Algonquin Park.

I heard one early this morning calling very briefly from the Lake of Two
Rivers campground, and proceeded to look for it for about two hours there,
but the crows had gone silent and I convinced myself I was hearing things.

I returned to the airfield an hour ago and immediately heard one calling
again close to the parking area, and after listening to it for about twenty
minutes, it flew in to say hello and sat on a spruce tree in the airfield.
At this point it sounded as though there may have been two, as one may have
been calling in the distance towards the campground at the same time.

Nice bird. If accepted, it’ll be the first record for the park.

Algonquin can be accessed via highways 400, 11, and 60. Access the airfield
by driving to the Mew Lake Campground (km 30.8) and parking at the wood
yard. The road is not plowed beyond to the airfield but is short and easily

update May 2 on eBird submitted by Jeff Skevington:
“Calling regularly fro 6:30 to 6:50 from Two Rivers Campground. Continuing bird found by Lev Frid.”
