Gifts of the crow: how perception, emotion, and thought allow smart birds to behave like humans.

Gifts of the crow: how perception, emotion, and thought allow smart birds to behave like humans. John Marzluff, Tony Angell.

New York: Simon and Schuster, 2013. Octavo, black and white illustrations, paperback.

Marzluff and Angell portray creatures that are nothing short of amazing: they play, bestow gifts on people who help or feed them, use cars as nutcrackers, seek revenge on animals that harass them, are tricksters that lure birds to their deaths, and dream. The authors marvel at crows' behaviour that we humans would find strangely familiar, from delinquency and risk taking to passion and frolic. A testament to years of painstaking research, this fully illustrated, riveting work is a thrilling look at one of nature's most wondrous creatures. Also available in hardcover [stock id 34619].
