I completed with the help of my bike a survey of crows in urban southeast Portland, OR. Why? - you tell me.
The name for this work is “Crow Diary” since crows, even though I wrote much that had little to do with crows, were the impetus for my work On my diary journey I discovered the world crows live in, my neighborhood. It’s not up there with Paris or the Grand Canyon on the list of most desired vacation destinations. It is a land only a few go to visit. Most folks just happen through it. I discovered in my neighborhood not only a present land but a past land, one full of interesting sites and creatures, some of them ghosts. “Site seeing” in my neighborhood became for me much like visiting Paris I think is to an upper middle class person. And it didn’t cost me much at all.
