Abstract:

t Crit, 0.01>P value) and 36.45% more in canopy height (t Stat=5.470>t Crit, 0.01>P-value) compare to non-roost trees. While comparing the distance from feeding sites with non-roost sites, the roost sites were observed to be selected near to feeding sites as nearest feeding sites were 1379.5m significantly nearer than non-roost sites (t Test=3.619>t Crit, 0.01>P value). The distance of nearest tree (average distance of trees from four direction) from the roost sites was 33.34±26m which was 100.67 m nearer than non-roost sites (t=4.356>t crit, 0.01> P-value). Larger trees with greater canopy, nearby human habitation which provide them shelter and safety along with anthropogenic feeding opportunities and moderate vegetation patches near the roosting places were the characteristics preferred for roosting purpose by house crows./p p style="" margin-bottom:0in;margin-bottom:.0001pt;text-align:justify;line-height:normal"="">
