Most of us have probably seen the YouTube videos showing crows using tools to get food. Apparently they have pretty phenomenal memories as well, remembering the faces of dangerous people for a long time and sharing the word with other crows.
When I first moved to Wichita Falls, there was a flock of crows that I saw most of the time near the entrance to the Tanglewood subdivision, but when the West Nile virus first began, the flock disappeared. I recently saw a few birds there again, so that is reassuring.
Crows are fascinating birds, more common in the county than the city.
