A new crow book coming!

I have been waiting so patiently, ok, maybe not so patiently, but waiting… and waiting… for John Marzluff’s new book, Gifts of the Crow: How Perception, Emotion, and Thought Allow Smart Birds to Behave Like Humans to come out. And it comes out in 6 days! You can officially order it on Barnes and Noble today! I just did! YAY! I am chomping at the bit to get my hands on this book! I cannot wait! Hip! Hip! Hooray!

As soon as I get it and read it, I will write up a thorough review for you here on CorvidCorner.com. =)

Till then!

Lecture on Crows by John Marzluff

You might have heard of this fellow, John Marzluff. He is a professor at the University of Washington who studies crows.

They have an elaborate way of communicating, one we cannot comprehend YET! =)  John Marzluff has written a few crow related books (one will be released in June of this year!). Here is a lecture on crows I found…check it out…
