Discuss Tourbillion1's answer to: Why are we having a Crow/Raven population explosion?

Why are we being over run with crows? I was born and raised in Torrance in the 60's and have never seen so many crows! Large flocks (or "murders" if you want to be picky) are all over the Southbay ...

As a longtime Southbay resident, I've also noticed more crows and less doves.  This coincided with the arrival of West Nile Virus, which has reduced the population of crows in the US.  This doesn't make sense to me at all, however maybe there is something about the area that makes it better for them.  For instance, are there less mosquitoes here?  I certainly don't know the answer, but it could be something like this.
