Friendly crows

My wife pointed me to this BBC News article about crows (and sometimes other birds) from all around the world who befriended humans, either because the humans fed them, or rescued them, or took care of them one way or another. There are many touching stories to read in there, some funny ones, but also some sad ones. It is a heart warming read. Strange how these wild birds can be in such good terms with at least some of our fellow primates, to the point of becoming... I wouldn't say exactly pets, but certainly friends. I am a cat person, but if I ever had a bird as a friend, I would want it to be a corvid.

Crows rock. All corvids do. And hey, who wouldn't want a couple of ravens like Odin?
