Crows....

...are by far my favourite bird. Mainly because they are the closest thing to a dog in the aviary world. They doddle around like dogs, they’re smart like dogs, and given time, they learn to recognize faces. So boo to your budgie; I’m sticking with the ubiquitous crow.

crows and ravens are most impressive creatures. intelligent, empathetic, serene. they're an assuring presence. if i want cute, i prefer pigeons and their disarming coos. i appreciate the common birds.

except for seagulls. they have stolen a croissant, ruined my poutine, and wrecked many coats. fuck seagulls.

... that you said cows, and I was agreeing.

I love cows. God's perfect animal. If we were all cows, there would be no wars!

Aren’t Ravens more creative. Crows are just copycats. Mimicry is mediocre. Plus, I think they’re cannibals, no? I hope I’m mistaken.

like the 5th most intelligent animal on the planet. If you want to avoid getting dive bombed during nesting season, throw them a handful of cat food or peanuts. But once you start feeding them you'll have to continue to do so, they'll be expecting a treat when they see you and will bomb you if you don't ante up.

I think I might actually buy a selfie stick now! Wave it around... that’ll scare ‘em. Fifth most intelligent animal? Yet a scare crow keeps them at bay? Can’t be that “smart”. Rating species intelligence is like rating the top ten rappers. Biggie. No PAC. No! Ja Rule.

should do a little google search before spouting drivel and proving the crow has more intelligence than you.

Who is always perched on the sad “scare” crow?

That movie The Crow from 1994 was amazing! Really liked the movie and soundtrack.
