    Cool Crows

    Determined to add variety to this section, I come again to present to you a viable and intelligent animal :
    The CROW!




    I don't have much pictures of them laying around and those two are the only ones I could find...

    Here's a video:

    They can remember faces for up to 6 years (I think it was 6). So if you do them wrong, they will alert the local perimeters of your presence and then a murder of them will know who you are.
    So be kind to the crows!

    My husband's family raised one years back. It lived outside once grown but was still tame enough to interact with people and had a pretty good vocabulary. I was over there once to pick up my younger siblings and heard a strange voice behind me saying "Hello!". I turned around and nobody was there. It happened a couple more times before I noticed it was a crow.

    Not a fan of the crow, don't hate them, but they are loud and aggressive.

    I don't know about aggressive. Around here, I regularly witness them getting the stuffing kicked out of them by smaller birds. You'll see a crow flying off, surrounded by some angry dive bombing songbirds and it does nothing to defend itself.

    No I would certainly never harm one but they are territorial of the dumpsters by my work.

    Loud and annoying, but I forgive that since they are so freaking smart. I love crows.

    I love crows. I have some amazing photos that I've taken over the years and even some framed photos that I've purchased. I even belong to a crow fan group.

    I love these birds. However, where I'm currently living, there is a turf war between the loud ass woodpeckers and the loud ass crows.

    They're hilarious, smart as hell, and can be pretty friendly.
