Avian photographer Lanny McDowell has spotted the first fish crows of the season in Oak Bluffs. The first fish crows on the Island were observed on the 2010 Christmas Bird Count, where 20 of them were identified as part of a much larger roost of crows at Farm Neck. These smaller crows have been seen in increasing numbers every winter since then. Fish crows can be distinguished by their short nasal cah-ah, which is different from the American crow's full-voiced caaw.
