Have you had a chance to notice gangs of crows hanging out before sunset on the quiet corners of our city? By the way, we learned that serious ornithologists DESPISE using the word “murder” to define a flock of crows.
During November and December, crows take the chance of more tranquil residential spots over our urban sprawl to get together, mingle, talk, play, and also gossip. As it turns out, socializing is a sign of intelligence, and since crows operate on a seven-year-old thinking level, they love getting together just for fun. How delightfully ironic is that some fellow beings have the time of their life while we’re called again to not leave our homes?
Crows can communicate with each other in dialects (check this crow imitating human talk), able to call people and places by name, hold grudges if you’re a jerk, and leave gifts for people they like. Crows are also great with other pets (check out this rescued crow feeding her cat and dog family). They remember what hurt them or who hurt them, and they learn from mistakes quickly, which in our book makes them operate on a late forty-year-old thinking level.
We learned other amazing facts about these feathered fellows, like their monogamy habits and their funeral rites when one of them passes away. But for now, we’ll just use them as subject matter for our paintings as a means to describe how jealous we are that they don’t have to follow any social-distancing nonsense. Lucky crows!
