A curious crow

On a walk while at the coast one early morning, a crow was seemingly curious, but may have been just expecting a handout. He followed me for a bit and did not mind posing, though I had nothing to reward him with. Crows have great memories and the ability to pass along information to the next generation too. They can be noisy pests, but there have been some great documentaries and books written about their intelligence. Have you had crow encounters?

They are amazing birds, the way they gang up on hawks too.

We have a couple that show up on our street quite regularly (at least I'm assuming it's always the same ones).

No I haven't - but I must say that crow looks rather imperious.

This crow must have known you,seeing that you go there for a walk on a regular basis.Over here many people prefer magpies to crows.

They are my next door neighbors. When I'm typing these words I can hear them speaking outside.

@jamesHxstatic None so far my friend. The crow in the picture looks like an intelligent crow.

I've seen some clips about how smart they are. In Australia they have learnt that they won't be shot in parking lots and they scavenge through the bins within a few feet of people. Normally they are very timid and cautious of people.

Crows are so annoying, but there is no question that they are very intelligent. I've also seen documentaries about their intelligence. One of those documentaries was talking about how if a crow likes you, it will communicate to the other crows that you are good, but if the crow get upset at you, it will tell all the others that you are bad and then you have all the crows annoying you instead of just one! haha

They are incredibly intelligent but I can't stand them. They are nuisance pests with the noise and overpopulation. They kill and eat smaller birds and eggs.

I love crows. I wrote a decent crow poem a few years back. Its been published in a small press so that's why I call it decent.
