    2nd annual crow homecoming

    The 2nd ANNUAL CROW HOMECOMING and final hurrah for the world’s 1st ROOT BALL PARK One of the great animal phenomena of the world is the congregation of large numbers of birds into a single communal sleeping group known as a “roost.” Annually, late October/early November, upwards to 10,000 crows come from as far away as Canada to roost in Coshocton, crow resort town, Crowtown.
