Creepy animal facts - Crows
Mankind has a long and checkered past with crows
and ravens: They have been feared as symbols of
death, because they' re all black and scary, revered
as creators of the world because, well, it was either
them or the seagulls, and worshiped as trickster
gods, because of their baffling intelligence.
Intelligent enough, in fact, for us to start worrying .
They can remember your face!
We know this, because
researchers in Seattle performed
an experiment with some crows
around their college campus.
Whenever the scientists walked around campus with the
masks en, the crows would "scold" and them...
because along with the ability to recognize us as individuals
the researchers also learned that crows can hold a grudge.
They captured seven of the birds, And pretty seen, it wasn' t just the first seven crews reacting.
tagged them, then let them go. Other birds, mes that hadn' t even been captured in the first
And they Sim it all while wearing place, started the scientists as well

They perspire with one another!

So, how did those crows above -- the mes that were never even
captured in the first place -- know to harass the masked
scientists? The answer is simple: They were told. All that cawing
isn' t just noise; they' re talking to ene another, and doing so in a
very advanced fashion. Scientists debate whether er not crows
actually have what we call a language. But why it' s a debate at
all is somewhat baffling: Those same scientists also readily
acknowledge that crows have regional dialects, a difficult thing
to have without a language.
identifying threats within their visual .
range and relaying that information to
ene another: Some ofthe crows never
actually saw the person in the mask,
but they knew about him all the same.

No. Animals are smart. Why does everyone act like they aren't?

The reason it is surprising is because they are using language. Language, actual, proper language, is a requirement for being considered as intelligent as a human. As an example, chimps, while they have communication - for example, making a sound meaning "food" and pointing - they don't have language. At best they can learn rudimentary sign language, but that needs constant pressure and teaching from humans.

What makes the difference between communication and language is complexity and evolution. Chimp-talk is made up of single words with singular meanings and no grammatical structure. As such, it could not be used to relay complicated and long-term information such as "There's men in face-like masks wandering around, they tried to capture me, attack them if you see them." The implication that crows are capable of this - a species that is supposed to be far less intelligent than chimps - is rather odd, and a little disturbing.

started mowing my lawn a few weeks ago..started noticing 2 crows cawing and flying low at me at the outside corner of my garage..goes on for several minutes..turn the hose on the birds..they keep coming back..closer with each pass, until i hear a 3rd higher pitched caw/peep..

long story short, fluff ball bird + shovel + lawn mower = abandoned nest
