Crows



I just saw the video headline about "Clever Crows"
Smart little devils, arn't they.
Reminded me of the robot crows on TuboSquid.

On 3rd day there I discovered there was more than women.  Wink

Re: Crows


All of the crow family (magpie, jay, rook etc) have long (for a bird) chickhood. Normally an indicator of inteligence.

The best behaviour I've heard of is when one of them has an unfortunate accident and dies early.
The others in it's family/troop hang around for hours bringing gifts/tokens like fresh grass.
This is akin to greaving and shows they have a sense of death and miss their fellows.

Re: Crows


Great videos.  Reminds me of the crows that had learnt to drop tough nuts on the road so that they were crushed by passing cars.

Amazing birds Smiley

Re: Crows


The only time I find crows annoying is when they have an argument with the seagulls outside my bedroom window at 5 a.m.

I live next to a 7 story building and when there's a fair wind up it's great watching the crows and seagulls (technically herring gulls, big ones with the red bit on their beak) ridge soaring and flying by each other. I assume they do it for fun 'cos they're not gonna get any food or a mate doing it.

I'll try and get a photo / video next time they do it.
