The more we learn about crows the more unbelievable they become.

Crows, very cool. ALL birds are pretty cool. Well, maybe not pigeons.

Crows and Ravens are very seems even many other bird species, too, just don't have the studies to show it!

The more I learn about animals, I conclude that they also have a rationality within their standards. What changes is often their behavior towards certain situations.

I have a lot of these birds come to my yard because I always have food and water there for whoever needs it, and as I watch these creatures eat and drink I notice that when i put out nuts for them the Crows pickup the nut and drop it on the cement part of the yard to crack it open, it making me laugh to watch them doing this.
