Crows ARE Smart

3 replies • Last post

Hello CL Friends!

LuckyMe was saying something in another thread about gulls, and I think crows, and how smart some of these birds truly are. This reminded me of something my middle son shared with me long ago. This is simply amazing.

Ted Talks, Amazing Intelligence of Crows (very entertaining, including how crows use tools, figured out how to "devise a new way of eating a food," and a vending machine for crows!):

Very entertaining and worth a watch! Smile

Hope, this is a great video. I really enjoyed it. I love how the crow instinctively knew he need a hook to the wire. I will have to look for more of these. Thanks

Did you see the other two, Ted Talks? Where they crack the nut in traffic and the vending machine thing? You reminded me of the video when you were talking about the gulls and/or crows in a thread or PM. I knew you would like this video. Smile

Yes, I've seen the ones where they drop the nuts into traffic, wait until the walk light comes on, and then eat the nuts. Smile So funny and intelligent. The vending machine one was good also. I love it when we can see animals think.
