Biographical and Historical Note: The Lancaster County Bird Club had its beginnings in December 1937 and has been active ever since in pursuit of its goals: to record the observation of bird life in the county, to disseminate in a popular manner the result of such observations, to provide education concerning the habits and identification of birds and to secure the cultivation of public sentiment in the preservation of our native bird life. Articles of Incorporation were filed and approved by the Department of State on December 12, 1983, under the Pennsylvania Nonprofit Corporation Law of 1972.

Lancaster County’s location in southcentral Pennsylvania makes it home to many diverse habitats that are attractive, not only to breeding birds, but also to migratory species. The Susquehanna River, the Furnace Hills, the Lancaster County Parks System, Octoraro Lake, Muddy Run Reservoir, Middle Creek Wildlife Management Area, sites owned by the Lancaster County Conservancy, and the vast agricultural areas all provide excellent birding opportunities.

Series 11, Box 9, Folder 3 Lancaster County Bird Club Crow Problem Correspondence 1998 – 2006

List of names and contact information to contact concerning the crow problem.

Email to Jane Abbot, et al., from Gina Brillhart informing the recipients that in anticipation of a large amount of crows at the Enterprise Road Office precautions were going to be taken. These precautions included an electronic noise generator at the parking lot that emitted both electronic and natural sounds that can, at times, sound very realistic. These noises were to begin at 3:00pm and end at 8:00pm each day and they were advised to inform any possible visitors of what was occurring. 3 November 1998.

Email from Ann Mease Bodling concerning the possibility of Manheim Township following through with a massive crow poisoning effort in the coming weeks. Suggestion was made that there may be a need for an advocacy role for the club to fill concerning controversial affairs and how they pertain to birds found locally. It was proposed that in addition to the general meeting, a board meeting be held to discuss the crow problem and research/answers be ready for any questions that are brought up during the general meeting. 13 January 2005.

Email to Sally from Ann. Contained within is a notice of an attachment that contains posts made by community members. Ann asks that if Sally has any new information to please inform her. 14 January 2005.

Email to Sally Lownsbery from Ann Mease Bodling contain contact information for the different municipalities and the suggestion to start with the Lancaster County Commissioners. 14 January 2005.

Email to Sally Lownsbery from Ann Mease Bodling, notice that a phone call was made to the USDA Wildlife Services Easter District out of Harrisburg at which point it was pointed out that no such plan of poisoning the crows was going to be taking place over the winter because there was still a lot of assessments and approval to be had. Should that change in the future, a public meeting would be held to inform and address any concerns that public had. Despite this, it was suggested that continued research be done regarding avicide so that if the topic comes up again they will be prepared. 14 January 2005.

Email to Sally Lownsbery from J. Eric & Robin Witmer concerning two actions that had been brought up at the recent Board Meeting. The first action was a draft of a letter to Municipalities regarding the crow problem and the request that, in future, humane actions be taken and not the use of poison as the results of such an action is unknown to the surrounding environment and wildlife. Anyone that should be affected by the crows should call conservation organizations or other experts to find a way to handle the problem. The second action was in regards to the donation of Audubon’s Baby Elephant Profile that was to be auctioned off. 16 January 2005.

Multiple letters and responses between Ann Mease Bodling, Sally Lownsbery Scott Weidensaul, Ann Pettigrew and Dave. The topic continues to concern the crow problem and the possible use of DRC-1339 and although tests were completed using DRC-1339 there are still many questions and concerns in the birding and conservancy community. There is a lot of disbelief with what is being told to the press via the USDA and shows of concern for any potential harm done to crows and other unintended victims. 18 January 2005.

Emails between Ann Mease Bodling and Sally Lownsbery concerning the continued crow problem. It is suggested that a petition be put on hold until more information be gathered, to do otherwise may make things more confusing and cause unnecessary mayhem. In addition, more names were brought up for possible contact on information regarding previous poisoning methods and the results. 21 January 2005.

Email from Jan A. Witmer, President stating the Club’s position on the crow problem and the proposed actions resulting. Attached is a list of individuals that this email went out to with contact information.

Email containing a message sent out by Audubon Pennsylvania regarding the speculation that they were not doing enough to protest the proposed methods of the crow problem solution. However, it would seem that they were doing quite a bit behind the scenes and helped to stop the use of DRC-1339 from being used. They are attempting to put a halt to the use of Compound 1080 but are having more difficulty doing so. With both types of poison though, Audubon Pennsylvania was working to challenge the federal registration of both DRC-1339 and Compound 1080 on the grounds that the chemical wasn’t compliant with the 1996 federal Food Quality Protection Act. 26 January 2005.

Handwritten note listing the date, time and location for a crow meeting. 27 July.

Handwritten note includes information about a Manheim township Commissioner meeting that is to be held concerning the crow problem. 30 July 2006.

Email from Ann Mease Bodling regarding the Bird Club’s role in the Crow Problem which was to be one of education and advocacy. It was recommended that the Club sponsor a separate public information meeting that would provide information about winter crow roosts and the known effects of the poison that is being proposed. Also, notice that she has been busy gathering supporters for their cause and finding ways that they can help. Lastly, informing the readers that the Mayor of Lancaster City stated they wouldn’t participate in the crow poisoning. 27 August 2006.

Email to Ann and the Members of the Board of Directors regarding the proposal for a joint meeting; at the time it was denied for reasons listed in the email mostly pertaining to the costs associated with such a joint meeting. 28 August 2006.

Email to Pat, Jan, et al. about the concerns raised in having a joint meeting. Much of the points made deal directly with the concerns listed as well as a second appeal to have a meeting about the possibility of participating in the joint meeting due to the urgency and short time-frame in which to participate and be proactive. 28 August 2006.

Email to Ann Mease Bodling, et al indicating that there is a need for another meeting to discuss the crow problem and that although there isn’t a consensus on a solution to deal with the crows, there is most likely consensus that poison is not viable. 28 August 2006.

Email to Bechandcall, from Jane indicating that having a speaker at the next September meeting wouldn’t be a problem and that a special meeting to deal with the crow situation is needed. 28 August 2006.

Handwritten note indicating that another surprise meeting was held at Manheim Township was held. Stated that Jim Martin was rather evasive about the crow situation and the proposed ‘solutions’. Also questions regarding why the Club wasn’t getting more involved in the Crow Coalition and a revision for the next meeting.   Attached is another note questioning the motives of Jim Martin. 29 August 2006.

Email response by Jonathan Heller to the email sent out by Kelly; stating that he agrees the Club needs to state their position he doesn’t feel that a public forum would be the way to go because of the short time frame in which to prepare for it and the possible liability issues. 30 August 2006.

The special board meeting was to go forward with a date and time chosen but no location due to no one living centrally in Lancaster County.

Email sent to Sally from Ann noting that verification was had that East Hempfield Supervisors had voted to deny MT’s request for funding for the poisoning and to establish a task force that would work on the crow situation. Also, questioning whether it would be possible to not read minutes from the last meeting or past bird sightings due to time as well as not including past events. 8 September 2006.
