Gifts of the Crow, with Dr. John Marzluff.
Zoom Evening Meeting, Tuesday, 4 April, 7:30 p.m.
Zoom waiting room opens 7:15 p.m.

Crows are mischievous, playful, social, passionate, and eloquent, with brains huge for their body size. They mate for life and associate with relatives and neighbors for years. And they know us. They live in our gardens, parks, and cities, they recognize our peculiarities, they avoid those who scold or threaten, they approach those who care for and feed them. They give us gifts. Humans and corvids have culturally co-evolved and we share the seven traits of language, delinquency, frolic, passion, wrath, risk-taking, and awareness.

With his extraordinary research on the intelligence and startling abilities of corvids—crows, ravens, and jays—scientist John Marzluff tells amazing stories of these brilliant birds and offer us an in-depth look at these complex creatures and our shared behaviors.

    The only problem with these meetings are the sound…not very clear at times.

    Thank you, Regards, Lina

      Sometimes I have problem with the volume, but didn’t this time. It often has to do with the device you’re watching it on.
