Crows flock to downtown Middlebury
Payne tipped us off to a lecture that Bridget Butler gave at the Ilsley Library last year on this very topic. (You can watch the full video, recorded by MCTV, on YouTube here. Butler, known as the “Bird Diva,” is a naturalist and bird lover who lives in St. Albans. She says that Middlebury-area residents had been contacting her, dying to know more about the crows they were seeing downtown.
We used Butler’s lecture to create our own short video of the birds — with footage by Middlebury College animation studio producer Daniel Houghton and music by Middlebury College music professor and composer Matthew Evan Taylor.
