Crows can recognize a face

Crows, it seems, can recognize human individuals by their face. They also remember past treatment and connect it to certain faces.

A humorous twist on this article is that one of the masks used in the study was of Dick Cheney. Apparently, although recognizable, he remained in the "friend" category due to his actions. So... maybe they're not so smart after all.

(kidding, I kid)

Enjoy learning more about the juvenile delinquents of the bird set -- the Corvidae,
