Crows
Crows

Trying to snatch a piece of meat slightly out of reach, Betty grabs a nearby wire with her beak and bends it into a hook. With her homemade tool, Betty then hooks the meat and pulls it toward her. Betty's problem-solving ingenuity is no fluke—even for a crow. Crows are among the smartest animals in the kingdom. In this fascinating narrative of crows outsmarting other animals (even humans!), children will follow scientists as they test crows' intelligence, proving that these black-feathered creatures are no birdbrains.
