See Why Ravens are the Brainiest of Birds (3 videos)

Get the Food in Fancy Tube

In this BBC video we meet two more ravens with a much fancier tube. It is U-shaped; if a raven drops rocks in one side he will raise the water level on the other side so that the bucket of food will be in reach. Watch the ravens’ performance then wait for the dénouement.

I saw one putting a hard walnut on a tram-road and wait until tram pass and crack it open, and then the one soaking a hard peace of bread in the paddle. I also saw 2 chasing a rabbit but they couldn't catch him (thankfully). There's no doubt in their intelligence. I think they can understand and speak a lots of words too. I shore hope the ones in second video are not in captivity.
