CROW SMARTS AND HOW PEOPLE HAVE STOPPED BEING SO DUMB ABOUT IT

Click here for piece by BBC on how our species finally came to realize we weren’t the only species manipulating the natural world.

It has taken us centuries to overcome all that Biblical cant about our species having “dominion over” the other living organisms.  Now we are gradually coming to realize how plants interact with one another and their environment.  To paraphrase Ben Franklin, we share a glorious living planet, if we can keep it.

  1. Back in Sandy Hook, Mississippi at Hart’s Store (classic country store) Mr. Hart kept a pet crow who could talk better than a parrot, mynah bird, or some of the customers in the store. Wish i knew the size of it’s vocabulary. It’s a vague memory ( Iwas 4) but valid as I got verification from my father before he passed.
