Genius Bird

Hello everyone!  A very warm welcome to you all!  The video I have chosen for this post is entitled "Genius Bird."  It is a short two minute clip on raven intelligence.  Enjoy!

The photos I am sharing today are ones I took a couple of weeks ago.  The first photo is of a Callas lily.  You just need to click on the images to see a larger view.

  3. ooo, i've never thought much about ravens before. i guess we sometimes use the phrase 'bird-brained' to refer to someone silly, but birds can be pretty smart! :D

  14. Los córvidos siempre me parecieron inteligentes. De tus flores me gustan las de ese geranio pelargonio que, además, tiene las hojas perfumadas con aromas cítricos. Un abrazo,

  18. I've come to accept the notion that a machine (computer) can be a lot smarter than me but a raven? I'm not giving up on that one....:)

  22. Hi Linda: Thanks for visiting our blog. I love ravens and the more I read about them, the more certain I am as to their intelligence. I rarely see them but often see crows and blackbirds. All beautiful!

  24. Ravens have been persecuted here in the U.K for ages. Now they're a protected species there are now twelve thousand pairs here in the U.K. I'm afraid the farmers still tend to break the law and shoot them, but they're also becoming a popular pet.
    Lovely pictures too Linda
