Summary
It's no longer an insult to be called "bird-brained." Scientists have discovered the New Caledonian crows deserve a spot alongside dolphins, monkeys, and chimpanzees in the ranks of super-smart animals. Yet even within this elite crowd, New Caledonian crows are special. These birds not only use tools, but manufacture a whole crow toolkit. And their puzzle-solving abilities invite the question: Is a crow smarter than a second-grader? Join the crow scientist team as they investigate the mysteries of crow smarts
