Crows, no matter the exact species being talked about, are typically recognized as being among the most intelligent of birds. Crows are crafty, keen, clever. They are trickster gods and crop-plundering pests, harbingers of war and users of tools.

Crows fascinate people because of their plumage, their behavior, their play. Almost everywhere in the world has crows (or ravens) and they are always well worth watching. In fact, they are even worth watching when they are going through the trash.

That is how I spent some time on my last visit to Jones Beach with the family when an energetic and engaging Fish Crow decided that it wanted food from one of the many garbage cans placed on the beach for lazy beach-goers to use. The local gulls had nothing on this bird that came back over and over again, carrying off food to either eat elsewhere or perhaps to feed to young. What do your local crows do to entertain you?
