Who would have guessed that crows are
second only to humans as toolmakers and tool users, that they have
complex family lives surprisingly similar to our own, and that
their vocalizations share much in common with human languages?
Sparky and fun-loving in tone, this
celebration of crow consciousness discusses the basic biology of
crows, as well as their family structure, tricky social
interactions, communication skills, incredible tool-using
capabilities, and impact on the human imagination. Based on more
than a decade of audacious research by scientists around the world,
Crows is rich in insight, humor, and stories.
