Encounters with the Wise Guys of the Avian World

The pitch black crow, as you well know, is intriguingly different from other birds. But studies show, you may not know, that crow brains compare in size (in relation to their bodies) to that of chimpanzees. So they’re smart as hell, and scientists at Oxford and elsewhere are only now beginning to investigate the extraordinary tool-making abilities and fascinating personalities of the birds. This illustrated compendium of crow lore overflows with personal stories, tales, poems, research, and art, and it is impossible to put down.
