    One of the MANY reasons I love the Corvidae family! Crows, ravens, etc. Love them all!

  2. Amazing!

  3. 007? He doesn’t need a Q for clever gadgets.

    More like McGuyver.

  4. That crow has more problem solving ability than some of my coworkers!!

  5. Is 007 laughing at the humans at the end? O.O

  6. That

    Awesomeoverload now? Ok NTMTOM, take me there, I will happily follow.

  7. Fine, now I have seen a bird that is smarter than me. I’ll go to my bed and cry.

  8. Clever girl …

    Seriously, that’s some pretty sophisticated reasoning exhibited.

  10. What the…???? Bird brain indeed!! I wish I possessed half that bird’s reasoning ability. 🙂

  11. Blue Footed Booby says:

    It’s entirely possible. I’ve seen crows line up on a fence to watch another crow yank a cat’s tail.



  12. Scoot over.

    More ‘Men of CO’?

  14. Laura DragonWench says:

    Wow. Just wow. I knew certain members of the Corvidae family were highly intelligent, but that display just blew me away. We joke about cats taking over the world, but I think crows might just get there first!

  15. Crow says, “that was fun. Now give me a puzzle I can really sink my teeth into.”
