Published by at 7:30 am under Crows, Ravens

This excellent video from Grist explains why crows are doing just fine in our changing world.

“They have a very large brain for their body size, more on par with a small monkey than a typical bird, and that allows them to quickly make associations between what they saw and what it meant,” says crow expert John Marzluff.

Don’t miss Marzluff’s information on their food choices at the 0:58 mark in the video.

Yo, crows!
