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.
