The Canny Crow

Not sure who he stole the packet of crisps from, but this chap carried the packet to a pool,
dropped it in to soften the crisps up, then pulled them out to eat.
That crow definitely has the smarts!

Wow. I love how you show us the hidden ability of animals like this crow. You are lucky to catch one in an act and have some photographs of some of the impressive character of that crow.

Really? The crow learned to talk? Wow. Very impressive. I never thought that could happen in reality. It is my first time to hear of that. I thought only a Parrot can talk. Very interesting.

Carrie, I remember reading about this crow that used to drop pieces of bread into the pond, then waited for a fish to surface, then he got the fish and the bread. How smart is that?

Like you said in the description ‘the crow definitely has the smarts!’. I can’t get over how clever it was to do that!

Sharing a Post

Why do my friends need to SignIn to read the post I shared?

Actually, this is a voting security feature. Only club members can read posts submitted into a contest. Since anyone reading the story is able to vote (click the Like button), we reserve these capabilities to members who SignIn. Before we implemented this security feature, people were voting multiple times and making the public voting process unfair and out of balance. To fix this, our staff finally decided to allow only members who SignIn to read the stories. Membership is free and easy, and ensures our club is safe, secure, and family-friendly!

Gems Stories are public:  On the other hand the Gem stories are different, since there is no voting on Gems. During a Gem event, your friends and fans can come on and read without a SignIn. This is one of the great advantages of the Gem events.
