VIDEO: THIS Crow Stares At A Stick 8 Moves Later Every Single Scientist Is Stunned In Disbelief

The term ‘counting crows’ isn’t just the name of a rock band, it’s also an old saying dating back to the 1700’s. It was based on an account of a farmer who figured out a crow could count to 4 or 5 after he set up a logic test and observed the bird working through it.


Crows are known to be incredibly intelligent and crafty animals, they score very highly on intelligence tests, and top the avian IQ scale. Besides counting, they also like to play and are known to use tools, both of which are behaviors associated with intelligent animals.

More studies on crows are needed to establish exactly how smart and advanced they really are and animal researchers are working hard at that.¬†One fairly recent experiment that tested a wild crow’s intelligence proves that they definitely are not bird brains, in the derogatory sense of the term.

A complex puzzle was set up and the crow had to work through it in order to solve the difficult problem. There were 7 different pieces or stages of the puzzle that the bird had seen before individually at different stages.

However, the video shows the first time the bird is seeing all the pieces together in one area. The crow has to asses and work with all the pieces in order to retrieve a stick that’s long enough to reach a piece of food. Once he digs the morsel out at the end he earns the treat and proves his mental agility.

Check out the video to see how complex the task really was and to see if the wild bird figured it out. Crows may just be smarter than young kids and this video makes me wonder what else are they capable of?
