Bird Brains: The Intelligence of Crows, Ravens, Magpies and Jays

by Candace Savage, Candace Savage

GREYSTONE BOOKS LTD | July 1, 1997 | Trade Paperback

Bird Brains: The Intelligence of Crows, Ravens, Magpies and Jays is rated 5 out of 5 by 1.

In an original and scrupulously researched text, Candace Savage describes the life and behaviours of sixteen representative species of corvids — members of the crow family. Drawing on the most recent research, she suggests that the birds may apply their mental powers to such everyday activities as choosing mates, building nests, teaching their young, searching for food and communicating with each other. Written in an easy conversational style, and supplemented with breath-taking colour photography, this exciting collection of close-up images draws from the work of Erin and Peggy Bauer, Fred Bruemmer, Tom and Pat Leeson, Leonard Rue III, Jeff Foott and Antti Leinonen, among others.

Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A fascinating feathered family An entertaining, vividly illustrated appreciation of the crow family that's as bright and lively as the birds themselves. Savage argues skilfuly - and persuasively - for the birds' high intelligence and social development, illustrating her point with both scholary research and (often very funny)casual anecdotes. A lovely gift for the bird fancier in the family.
