A CROW TRIED TO GO IN OUR CLASSROOM AND HE HAD A PEN
You’ve all just like, completely skipped over the possibility that this crow has seen people using pens in this room, found one, and is trying to return it. There’s been videos of crows picking up sweet wrappers and stuff and placing them in bins after seeing humans put their litter in bins. I really do believe that this crow is trying to return the pen and that is ADORABLE AS HELL.
Another cool crow deal: Once, when trying to assess if crows could reason and use tools, scientists had two crows who didn’t know each other each take a wire from a table (one was hooked, one was straight) and try to grab meat from a bottle with it. The crows could see each other, though they had separate bottles. Only the straight wire worked for this, so they hypothesized that if crows could reason, the second trial would have the two crows fighting over the straight wire. The second trial started and, to the surprise of the scientists, the two crows both went for the bent wire, one held it down and the other unbent it. They both got meat out of their bottles. They came to a peaceful solution without verbal communication. Crows are probably smarter than we are.
I love crows. Bird behavior in general interests me and corvids especially have shown really high levels of intelligence.
There’s a video on youtube somewhere where a thirsty little crow is at an amusement park, and he finds some humans with a water bottle. He starts pecking at the cap and at first the people didn’t catch on, but he kept persisting, trying to get at the cap.
It took a little bit for the humans to get it but they unscrewed the cap for him, and filled it with water and he drank from it.
The crow was so used to seeing people drinking out of these magical liquid containers and he knew exactly where it came out of and was able to communicate what exactly he wanted.

Crows = the best birds.

She is the SWEETEST little thing, I love her already. She is getting a little lonely & bored by herself, but she’s sadly too little to introduce to my girls, I don’t trust Crawfisha not to be too rough with her. Soon, though!
sitting in silence with your best friend is actually really nice because youre together and youre just happy to be together even if the both of you are just scrolling through tumblr and twitter because you occasionally point something else to the other person and laugh and maybe talk but youre just comfortable and together and thats enough
Finished my fall scrapghan!
Basically I gathered all the half-used balls of yarn from my stash that seemed Autumn-ish, arranged them by color, and crocheted a giant granny square.
Woo, got my DS connected to school’s internet, and got my shiny Gengar!
Was finally able to Wonder Trade out the 9 or so Eevees I hatched. Now I’m just wandering around in Friend Safari looking for a shiny Espurr or Munna.
