When I lived in Tustin Cal ifornia I often went for walks in the old parts of Tustin . On One street were numerous walnut trees and a goodly number of crows. The lady who owned the old Victorian house I had stopped to admire c ame out and told me to watch those crows; They are the cleverest birds.I watched with her and sure enough the crows dropped walnuts on the street.then they watched and saw cars r un over the nuts. ;Once the cars were gone here came the crows;they hopped do wn and ate away on the nutmeats until they saw a car coming and flew back up into the trees. Then more nuts came down and the process started all over again. Smart birds!!!!

They are really smart! I read from some stories, the crows are very clever. But, I was sad to see there were a few times when I fed the birds in the park, and the crows would fight against each other to get the food. I usually the pigeons would share the food.

I have always wondered just how smart they were

To be honest, I did not know. You see, never ends to learn more and new!

I have heard that crows and magpies (same family) are very clever. The ones you saw certainly demonstrate this. Animals learn very quickly when food is on offer and this must also apply to birds.

I read an interesting story about a girl who would feed this group of crows and in return they would bring her "gifts" like shiny bits of metal and other things. Crows are very amazing and smart animals.
