Crows! Crows! Crows!

Crows are powerful, intelligent, and symbolic creatures. They are both hated and loved. They can speak, are more brilliant than we ever knew and, for those who have thrown rocks at them, they remember faces!

It has been noted that a crow can remember a face for five years. (LINK)

Bothered crows may at first "give harsh calls, which we call 'scolds' that attract other crows who are nearby to join in the mob," according to study co-author John Marzluff. "The mob of two to 15 birds hounds us, sometimes diving from the sky to within a few meters or less -- This pursuit lasts about 100 meters (328 feet) as we walk away."

Crows are also brilliant engineers and problem solvers.

This time of year, we think a lot about crows and cornfields, scarecrows, and Edgar Allan Poe who made the raven a symbol.
