Clever Crows

Did you know that crows are clever and adaptable? They can recognize and remember human faces, and some can even read traffic lights, so they can safely pick up food from the road!

I have been fascinated with a group of crows in the field recently. They seem shy and skittish to me. Each time I try to sneak closer for a better photograph, they fly away. I hope this is because they don’t recognize my face yet…

In folklore, seeing four crows together means wealth. We’ll see!


About the author jmankowsky

I live in Central Massachusetts in the United Stares, where I have recently retired from public school teaching after thirty-four years. I am a nature photographer, particularly focusing on the the wide variety of birds to be found in this area. I am a keen supporter of the Massachusetts Audubon and the exceptional work that they do in education and protecting nature. It pleases me that many of the photographs I have posted here have also been displayed on the Wachusett Meadow Audubon in Princeton, MA website. I would love to connect with other primary school teachers in the hope that these photos might be useful in inspiring children to a greater connection with nature.
