Crows are scaryThey
use tools
Can be taught to speak (like parrots)
Have huge brains for birds
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.
Guys I’m really scared of crows now.(q) 

i love crows so much

crows are amazing

My favorite legend is that crows are the souls of the dead

crows are the coolest shit

Yeah but have you seen this 


true story: When I was a kid, my grandpa always joked that crows followed him because when he was a kid, he shot a beebee gun at one. And, it was kind of uncanny. We’d all be hanging outside and then all of a sudden CAWWW CAAWW up in the trees around our house. When my grandpa died I was 13 and not long after I started to notice that crows were starting to hang out around me instead? i remember going to washington dc and without fail hordes of crows would fly in after i was at a place for ten minutes or so. since then i vowed to be really nice to crows, say hi to them and stuff. they dont follow me around anymore, but whenever i see a crow im like *wave*
it’s obviously just like family superstition and shit but yeah i was always taught that crows are way smarter than you think.
