They're caught in a baited drop trap. We familiarize them with the trap and have it full of food and then, the day of the banding, we close the entrance and hope they don't notice. Lots of crows are quite skeptical, so we have to be very careful that they don't see us do that! After that, the crows drop in through the top of the trap, but are unable to fly back out easily. While they wait in the trap, they're able to feast on a nice pile of meat, fish and veggies, which we hope makes up for the minor inconvenience!

We thank everyone who has backed the project for your incredible support! If you like the project and want to see it funded, please consider sharing it with your friends and family and urging them to contribute. Even the smallest donation helps us go a long way in learning more about the ecology of these birds and educating others!

Yup, this is likely what we call "sentinel behavior" where one crow will look out for predators and such while the rest of the group feeds and then switch positions. This allows the rest of the group to concentrate more on feeding than wasting time being overly vigilant.
