Crows and tools  

Friday, October 05, 2007

BBC News has an article up Clever crows are caught on camera about crows using tools in the wild. In the past scientists have studied New Caledonian crows in a captive environment and recorded them using tools, but with a new camera that they can attach to the tail of a crow they can now catch them in the wild using tools in ways they don't in captivity.

They can use their bills to whittle twigs and leaves into bug-grabbing implements; some believe their tool-use is so advanced that it rivals that of some primates.
