BERWICK, N.S. - No one knows the whereabouts of the tens of thousands of crows that used to plague communities in Nova Scotia's Annapolis Valley - and no one really cares, as long as they don't come back.
For more than a decade, up to 40,000 of the birds would descend upon various towns and villages in the area ever winter.
The noisy, raucous animals stuck together at night, cawing and cackling so loudly that local citizens couldn't sleep.
And, yes, they fouled houses, cars, sidewalks and sometimes passersby, their droppings falling like a hideous rain when they took off from their roosts.
But now, few people in the valley have had to endure what some referred to as the black plague.
The town of Kentville forced them out about seven years ago, but they moved on to Wolfville, rural Kings County and then to Berwick. But municipal officials in those communities now say most of the crows are gone.
