In a battle of wits, could a bird outsmart a kindergartner? Don't be too quick to say no: One clever young bird solved a problem that has stumped 5-year-old children, according to a new study.

Noted. There is currently a program on PBS on this subject. I watched it tonight. Crows can solve complex problems that younger kids cannot. This is an interesting program I recommend watching it if you have a chance.

Crows are truly fascinating birds, they can do a lot of interesting things, even tossing nuts onto the road so that cars will run over them, cracking the shells and the crow eats the inside of the nuts.

Non sono affatto stupita, da sempre che sappiamo dell'intelligenza di questo uccello, di come riescono a risolvere problemi piuttosto complessi che insorgono intorno a loro. Grazie per la condivisione di questo articolo.
