is it possible to see a fish crow in northern Vermont?
This morning we had a pair of birds at our feeder that look like fish crows. They looked just like reg. crows but much smaller - not much bigger than a blue jay. They were not grackles. Both were solid black with black beaks. We live in the NEK of Vermont on the Canadian border and the Conn River which has not frozen over this winter.

Why don't you look at a range map? Bird field guides usually have a small map showing the range of each species.

I have looked at maps and they don't show its range as far north as us. I also looked at the responses to the GBBC for both Vermont & New Hampshire and none were reported.

The only reliable way to tell a fish crow from an American crow is to hear it. They sound distinctly different.
