Corvids, particularly crows and ravens, are extremely intelligent. Their total brain-to-body mass ratio is equal to that of the Great Apes, and in experiments, they've demonstrated a greater level of intelligence than dogs!! Crows have the ability to reason and to use tools and have often been seen cracking nuts by placing them on a crosswalk, letting the passing cars crack the shell, waiting for the light to turn red, and then safely retrieving the contents! Crows and ravens are probably my favourite birds and so, when Hubby and I were out for a drive on a quiet country lane and passed this particular crow standing guard on an old fence post, we stopped, backed up and pulled over to the side of the road so I could get out and photograph this guy, who posed so very disdainfully and regally for me!
