♫ CARRION MY WAYWARD BIRD ♫ You’re looking at one of the most intelligent and adaptable of all bird species: the Carrion Crow. Since living alongside humans, this crow has learned to tactically place nuts on the road and wait for cars to crack them open.
They’ve also been spotted using sticks to access food out of reach. And that’s not all - Carrion Crows, like others of the species, quickly learn which gardens are safe and will return repeatedly to feast on worms, seeds and fruit. Even when they hide their food to save it for later, they always remember the exact spot it was hidden. We’re not saying they’re superior to humans, but how many times have you “lost” something that was in your hand the whole time?
