Winged garbage collectors

The American Crow is a common species across much of the United States, where they are year-round residents. Their summer range extends into Canada. American Crows are known to be highly intelligent. Scientists believe part of this is their ability to communicate with one another. They have also proven to be adept at solving food-gathering puzzles. In 2007, hacker Josh Klein developed a vending machine to train crows to pick up coins in return for peanuts.

With the innovative teaching machine, crows might someday be taught to perform other tasks, including picking up trash! The American Crow has been on Birdorable since September 2006. Be sure to check out our great collection of American Crow t-shirts & gifts!
