I Crow What You Did Last Summer

The science boys are back to discuss the terrifying fact that Crows can recognize human faces. Don’t ever pull a prank on crows or you’ll be creating an enemy for life. Joe wonders if crows are racist; Raj may or may not be bad with faces, and Jono’s dad is in trouble.

The Paper: “Lasting recognition of threatening people by wild American crows” (Marzluff et al., Animal Behavior 2010)
