People Share Amazing Examples Of How Smart Crows Are, And Some Are Hard To Believe

Did you know that a group of crows is called a murder? Or that crows actually recognize faces and can even hold a grudge on you? And what about their incredible intelligence? These outstanding birds are able to read traffic lights, they have different dialects that they can change, and when they die, their neighbors sometimes even hold a funeral for the bird. Sounds pretty cool, right?

Well, as it turns out, we are not the only ones to be amazed by these birds and their incredible abilities. One Tumblr user was so surprised by the personality that crows possess, she wrote an entire post about them. Her popular musings have started a thread where people also shared their encounters with these magnificent birds.

Sad depressed and new to town with no one i knew i walked up to my local church with my two kids. Walking up i saw three of the largest most majestic crows on a branch directly facing us that we would have to pass under to get to the picbic table there. I could sense them studying us and watching our every move. They bagan to converse with one another and stayed on branch until we left. They followed me home that day. Like they could sense how depressed and lost i felt. They began making appearences in my yars and at my back door. I began feeding them and they would sit spread in the giant maple and surronding trees out back. When i began feeding them they would wake me or caw relentlessly for me to feed them. They would follow us through town while we walked to do our errands. They sat quietly in the trees and would caw onpy if i was alone when my ex was sick of cancer and dying as though they heard him express his discomfort at their presense. They have brought many many more friends
