    All the Crows that I have  been watching appear to be healthy . No evidence of foot disease when Perched their weight always looks  evenly disbursed  On both feet. I do not know about the West Nile Virus  for my area SC  haven’t been here very long .I have never witnessed any aggression among the flock they always seem to be watching out for each other ,when feeding there’s always a spotter  he’ll sit and tree and watch when ones done eating then another will come down and repeat process for the most part I do have some brave ones they  come on their own eat and  then go

    It might be harder  for them to  acquire a breeding space due to pecking order etc ,  but  if they stay within the flock you’ve heard of safety in numbers.  I believe there chances for survival long term is greater then the birds that are on their own with out a flock / support system  . I think they see the bigger picture

    What I have  Observed , I throw out the left over corn bread or muffins and there is one crow we call him the stacker.He takes one piece at a time and stacks one on top the other the most I’ve seen him carry off is 4 pieces stacked together, if he drops One piece because they were off balance he will start over he’s very meticulous takes him a few minutes to get his pieces just right . Flys off till  about 6 PM and he’s back .

    I don’t have large roosting groups wish  I did.  But  I've got a family that nest near by and bring the juveniles to my yard to forage and learn to fly it’s amazing they have been coming for 8 yrs every day AM and PM been saying Hello to them and positive this year the one said it back. I can sit in yard and they will come down and forage in front of me . My thoughts when I do see large group of birds coming to roost is absolute happiness we need to learn  to  coexist together .theres always a way if you have the desire to try .
