The project is aiming to crowdsource the location of the birds, identifying urban and non-urban crow foraging areas during their breeding season between late February and May.

“The experiment will provide insights into behavioural adaptations contributing to the success of crows in urban locations,” said Popescu, who is a member of Assistant Professor of Biological Sciences Kiyoko Gotanda’s research group.
