    That was an amazing video. Thanks for posting. Have you ever seen a Crow that talks? I have known 3 different people that had Crows as household pets. The Crows were taught to speak single words and even several words together.

    Smart bird!
    Thanks for posting.
    It's actually a short clip from this amazing show:
    A Murder of Crows ~ Introduction | Nature | PBS
    which we rented from Netflix.
    I really enjoyed this book about crows: In the Company of Crows and Ravens - Marzluff, John M.; Angell, Tony; Ehrlich, Paul R. - Yale University Press

    You seen the one where the crow (maybe raven) steals the fish out of the ice fishing hole ?

    Blue Jays are also a very smart bird (same general family as crows)...They are easy to teach to catch peanuts in mid air etc...they often become tame enough to take peanuts out of an open hand...
    They learn to use tactics like imitating the sounds of hawks to scare other birds away from feeders...they also learn to use the sun to cast their own shadows over other feeding birds for the same purpose...

    In my youth my uncle caught and tamed Bill, a crow.
    Bill was reared on canned dog food which he shared with pooch, consequently Bill barked rather than caw-ed.
    Also Bill became a watch dog (crow) and barked whenever a visitor arrived. Really freaked visitors!

    But Bill was a thief! Stole the uncles artist brushes just to get attention (he liked shiney things!)

    Yes crows are smart!
