Summary
Crows are one of the most intelligent species on the planet. They have a proven ability to reason and problem-solve and have long and dependable memories. They engage in complex social interactions that range from group play and hunting to gang-style killings and funerals. They've been called "flying apes" because their behaviours can be more like primates and humans than birds. This visually stunning HD documentary offers fresh insights into the secret life of crows, using tiny, state-of-the-art radio tracking devices, creative camera techniques and pioneering field research. With exclusive access to a series of fascinating new research experiments being conducted into the cognitive abilities of crows around the world, A Murder of Crows will change how you see the common crow
