As The Crow Flies

Did you know that.......

.....crows living in suburban areas require only 10% of the nesting territory that crows
living in the wilderness do and that they build fake nests to fool predators?

.......that crows will crush an ant and rub it all over themselves 
like perfume because the formic acid in the ants helps 
ward off parasites and that this is called 'anting'?

........that pet crows give their owners names and this is identified
by a unique sound they make around people that they
would not otherwise make?

........that female crows mate for life, but male crows will cheat?

.....that crows can count to six?

......that crows will sunbathe for vitamin D?

......that crows have been observed chasing sparrows into buildings
in order to stun them. The result is sparrow for lunch.
They also pick on birds their own size.....and that mobbing crows
can seriously injure hawks.
