The Intelligence of Crows

I’ve always been fascinated by crow intelligence and at the same time amazed how few people recognize this intelligence especially since, according to some cognitive research, theirs exceeds that of dogs. This video lecture from a writer Joshua Klein, who has been involved with an amateur study of corvid behavior, highlights this.

Of course a crow vending machine seems like a rather preposterous idea for dealing with a crow nuisance; but somehow after watching this the reaction to a crow problem in cities like Auburn seems equally dense.
