NORWICH – Early-rising downtown residents may have noticed a surprising silence blanketing the city in the past two days, and the community as a whole has something to look forward to besides the warming temperatures – the season of the crow has ended.
“It’s awfully strange,” commented Garf’s Deli employee Denise LaFever, who regularly opens the downtown business in the early morning. “It’s really eerie to not see them out there anymore. I guess I’d just gotten used to them.”
Mayor Joe Maiurano said that it’s not unusual for the growing crow population to migrate elsewhere in late March, but warned that the fowl infestation will most likely return in the fall, as it has for years.
