NATURE | A Murder of Crows | Preview | PBS

Duration: 00:34
Program: Nature #2802
Broadcast Date: Oct. 24, 2010

Crows do not have the best of reputations. They are generally dismissed as spooky. But their image is about to take a real turn. New research has shown they are among the most intelligent animals in the world, able to use tools and recognize each other's voices and 250 distinct calls. And they are able to recognize individual humans and pick them out of a crowd up to two years later. Crow experts present captivating footage of the species as we have never seen them before.
