Crows and ravens are considered to be the brains of the avian world. This online presentation will introduce these clever birds, the amazing behaviors they display, and how they demonstrate cognitive thinking. Learn about the intelligence and life history of crows and ravens, including the fascinating phenomena of winter crow roosts, an annual nightly gathering that takes place from October to March. In some places in Massachusetts, these roosts may have up to ten thousand birds! Our special guest for the evening will be a Mass Audubon Animal Ambassador raven, where we'll get up close and personal and see characteristics we discussed in real time.
Presenters: Patti Steinman, Education Coordinator, Arcadia Wildlife Sanctuary, Kathleen Regan, Teacher/Naturalist Blue Hills Trailside Museum
