WLVR’s Brad Klein watches thousands of crows flying over the Lehigh River in Bethlehem. Always heading East in the morning, and West every evening. Which raises the question, where are they spending the night? He seeks out their evening roost, and finds over 10,000 of them in Allentown’s 1st Ward.

Listen to the story.
There is a large parking area across from the Parkettes Gymnastic Center where the Allentown Crow roost can be easily and safely observed around sunset. Crows do move to new areas, but this site has been reliable, Winter of 2020/2021.
