Jill --

we live on the west side of the lake parallel with Lake City, and so get a
large fly-over every evening and morning -- it is not one huge flock but
rather groups with pauses. usually starts a bit before sunset and
continues until closer to dusk. and brighter the sun the later it takes
place -- heavy overcast makes it earlier than bright sunset. I'd suggest
you plan to arrive at the roost just about scheduled sunset, as many Crows
should already be there but lots more arriving over the next ~15 or more
minutes, I would think (I've never gone to the roost myself, just sit in my
living room and watch the flow.
