the teacher of crows

Another one I missed in the turbulent finish to the 07-08 school year: the man who taught crows how to use a vending machine. Crows have the intelligence trifecta: causal reasoning, curiosity, and persistence. Watch and be amazed.

Added: Funny he should mention The Birds...
Experts are telling Chicago residents to beware of the birds.

The fiercely territorial behavior of red-winged blackbirds is being blamed on several recent dive-bomb attacks. The birds peck at unsuspecting bicyclists and pedestrians and swipe their hair.
