Naturalist Dale Goodner said crows are intelligent birds but can be pests.
"When they roost in certain places, it's the opposite of blacktopping," said Goodner, supervisor of environmental and interpretive services for the Peoria Park District.
On Thursday, a few crows began streaming into Peoria by 4:45 p.m., then the numbers increased until dark.They gathered in trees along High Street overlooking downtown and the University of Illinois College of Medicine campus.
But some also were scouting out locations in the city to settle later.
Tremon Ellegood, who handles maintenance for the First United Methodist Church at 116 NE Perry, has been trying to defeat the crows as he studies their behavior.
The crows are likely to stay until spring, when they will disperse into small groups and move elsewhere, Goodner said.Until then, people will have to live with them.
That's because getting rid of the large numbers likely is impossible.Even shooting them would be ineffective, and noise will just relocate them, he said."It shifts the problem along."

As a former Chief Naturalist for the Peoria (IL) Park District, Dale Goodner has introduced many people to forest and prairie ecosystems. He also (still) authors an environmental column for Peoria's monthly newspaper, The Community Word. Goodner retired from the Park District as Supervisor of Interpretive Services in 2009 and moved back to northeast Wisconsin, where he enjoys the great outdoors, empty-nesting (or not) with his family. Goodner's artcle for Empty Nest will one day be published in a book he's working on. Dale Goodner can be reached at
