So nice!

Crow birds and daws (or jackdaws?) are quite intelligent. Theropods and their successors are here since millions of years.. i wonder if mankind or its evolutionary successors will last this long, with our special kind of "intelligence".

Now that i write this, a magpie is wandering up and down in front of my window..

Great story and read Eichhörnchen. As Catfish already said, Crows and Ravens are very intelligent. I think most birds and animals are more intelligent than given credit for. I had never heard of crows bringing gifts though.



Awesome post.
