Smart.

And we’re gearing up to kill off half of all species, just as we’re beginning to appreciate how much we can learn from them.

    That is a neat clip—-a “snowboarding” crow. Smart indeed. The average crow is as smart as the average human 7-year-old. Check this out.

    I learned how smart they were 60 years ago when I hunted as a kid. They would never let humans get too close at any time—maybe 20-30 yards at best, but when hunting season opened and you walked out towards them with a gun in hand, they took off when you were 150+ yards away. If a shot was fired at some game animal, you didn’t see a crow for hours after.
