Crows, ravens and jays come from a fascinating group of birds known as the corvids. Learn about this fascinating and arguably most intelligent group of birds. Discover the species around the world that top the charts in avian brain power and about the abilities of some of the corvids right here at home. This program will feature live New York State corvid members.

NOTE: Organized groups (scouts, schools, hiking clubs, etc.) are welcome, but are asked to call Five Rivers at 518-475-0291 to register.

DEC’s Region 9 check station, located on Route 16, in Holland, Erie County (northbound about one mile south of the town of Holland), will operate Saturday, Nov. 17 from noon until 8 p.m., and Sunday, Nov. 18 from 10 a.m. until 6 p.m. Participation is voluntary and helps DEC gather valuable data to assess the status of the area’s big game population.

Hunters are encouraged to bring their deer to the check station where DEC staff will determine deer age and collect other important biological and harvest information. With black bear season opening the same day as deer season, wildlife staff will also check harvested bears to collect weight and sex information, along with pulling a premolar tooth to determine the bear’s age.

Technicians from the State Department of Health (DOH) will also be present at the check station to examine deer for ticks and collect samples to test for Lyme disease.

As in previous years, hunters wishing to donate their harvest to “Hunters Helping the Hungry” sponsored by the Venison Donation Coalition, may drop off a deer at the Holland check station during days of operation before 6 p.m.

Crows are not always thought of in positive ways. Come learn about these fascinating creatures, then decide if your opinions have changed. We will begin with a brief presentation about crows, a crow craft, and an introduction to a live crow! Next, if weather permits, we will go for a short walk to look and listen for these birds in the wild. Please call to preregister for this event by Monday November 12, as space is limited.

NOTE: Organized groups (scouts, schools, hiking clubs, etc.) are welcome, but are asked to call Five Rivers at 518-475-0291 to register.
