Crows are watching your language, literally

That crows can recognize humans faces (and other physical attributes) has been a staple of our experiences with them for thousands of years.

Although we still have more questions than answers, it’s not for lack of trying;in fact parsing crow “language” is still a hot topic in corvidology.
