like seriously their brain-to-body size ratio is equal to that of a chimpanzee
They vocalize anger, sadness, or happiness in response to things
they are scary smart at solving puzzles
some ravens stay with their mates until one of them dies
they can remember faces
SIDENOTE HERE BECAUSE HOLY SHIT. They did an experiment where these guys wore masks and some of them fucked with crows. Pretty soon the crows recognized the masks = douchebag. But the nice guys with masks they left alone. THEN, OH WE’RE NOT DONE, NO SIR crows that WEREN’T EVEN IN THE EXPERIMENT AND NEVER SAW THE MASK BEFORE knew about mask-dudes and attacked them on sight. THEY PASSED ON THE FUCKING INFORMATION TO THEIR CROW BUDDIES.
They remember places where crows were killed by farmers and change their migration patterns.
What the fuck do you mean you’re scared I want to talk to a fucking crow this is rad
You mean crows are very intelligent and deserve your respect, peasants
Have you ever interacted with a crow? There is no reason to fear them if you’ve done nothing to them. They remain wary of all persons until proven otherwise and even if you’re nice to them they remain on guard. They give no shits about you unless you’re near a nest or have food that looks like you’ll leave behind.
