Crows are the smartest birds in the animal kingdom who give zero ducks. Want proof? Just take a look at any of the funny photos below. Crows (and corvids, the family that includes crows, ravens, rooks, and magpies), like to pull the tails of birds and animals who are twice as big as them because they are not afraid. Some argue that this unusual bird behavior was developed to snatch food away - but the other theory is that these cool birds simply like to behave like major assholes.

Also, if you think there's nothing cooler than a bald eagle flying up high in the sky in all its terrifying glory - think again. Crows use majestic eagles as their chauffer boys and personal taxi drivers to take them where they need to go.

One of these intelligent animals even stole the dentures from a man who saved his life - first stealing the poor guy's heart, and then, his smile. Do you need more evidence of the incredible badassery of these smart animals?

    If you will note, they are not ever seen doing this in front of the eagle. They're smart enough to know better.

    Eagles - both Bald and Golden - are great at fishing. It's hilarious to watch them. There's a pond at the base of the Bennett Dam in BC that the staff stock with trout so they can go fishing on their lunch breaks. It's an eagle smorgasbord. They squabble like a bunch of teenaged girls over their catch, and the crows and ravens are right there, stealing their fish while they argue.

    I can just see the payback for this. Squirrel gathers friends and finds crow's perch or nest and they just start pelting it with acorns and rocks.

    Corvids [and many other birds] consume tobacco -- as in, they eat it -- to ward off parasites and kill intestinal worms. Had a crow we rescued, years ago, and he kept nickin' my husband's tobacco, straight from the pouch... or the end of the cig, before he'd get it lit XD

    Drive-by comment on this entire beautiful thread of corvid photos: we didn't newly need *proof* (despite enjoying examples) that corvids are clever-but-annoying a******s who don't give a damn, the "biggest badasses of the animal kingdom" -- the very fact that we ourselves [use the term] "crow" in victory is a reference in our language to the long well-known corvid habit of audibly gloating over such successes.
