Omnom. When I was young (about four or five), my grandparents had these growing on the fence between our property and theirs. My brother and I would walk down the back, he’d pick the ripe ones off, and we’d eat them. I loved them, but haven’t eaten one since.

Called “feathered apes” for their simian like smarts, crows use tools, understand physics, and recognize themselves and humans. But new research suggests that the brainy birds may be even smarter than was previously thought. Given a complex problem and an assortment of tools, New Caledonian crows came up with a creative solution that hints at higher-order thinking.

i have always loved crows, ravens, and magpies. corvids are clever and resourceful.
