Book Review


Crows are usually thought of as dark, creepy animals, but the findings of Gavin Hunt, a scientist who studies New Caledonian crows, give a different picture. Crows are actually the world’s brightest birds. They use tools, like humans, and creatively capture their prey. The author and photographer make readers feel like they’re in New Caledonia studying crows. Next time readers hear crows communicating, they might think twice about their obnoxious sound, and more about what it might mean.
