Abstract: Evening roosting behaviour of house crow (Corvus splendens) was monitored from 27 locations in the heavily urbanised mainland of Singapore. This paper describes the general roosting behaviour of house crows. I analysed the relationships between crows' roosting times and environmental parameters (such as sunset time, temperature, light intensity and relative humidity). Sunset time was significantly correlated with all the roosting parameters: first arrival time, half arrival time, last arrival time and last vocalisation time. My study suggested that the roosting behaviour might be influenced by several environmental variables.
