Crow Smarts: Inside the Brain of the World's Brightest Bird by Pamela S. Turner
J  598.8  TUR

Join scientist Dr. Gavin Hunt and his team in New Caledonia as they investigate the mysteries of crow smarts. How do New Caledonian crows learn to use and make tools? Is it possible that crows are improving their tool technology and passing the improvements on to the next generation—an achievement long thought unique to humans? Where is this tool use driving the crow brain, and what can crows teach us about the evolution of intelligence?
