I have this wimp app on my ipad and this vid of a crow having some fun popped up the other day. I am guilty of sending vids of this nature to my family.
Jeffrey gets quite few. “I think I have seen this one” was his reply to this crow sledding.
Perhaps you have not.
“The crow genus makes up a third of the species in the Corvidae family. Crows appear to have evolved in Asia from the corvid stock, which had evolved in Australia. The collective name for a group of crows is a flock or a murder.
Recent research has found some crow species capable of not only tool use but also tool construction and meta-tool use. Crows are now considered to be among the world’s most intelligent animals with an encephalization quotient approaching that of some apes. The Jackdaw and the European Magpie have been found to have a nidopallium approximately the same relative size as the functionally equivalent neocortex in chimpanzees and humans, and significantly larger than is found in the gibbon.”
