    Called “feathered apes” for their simianlike smarts, crows use tools, understand physics, and recognize themselves and humans.

    Crow is catching a ride on the back of a Vulture in Spain. Here's the scoop: "The crows are certainly intelligent. This year, one of the most peculiar photographies of the nature is the sequence taken by the photographer Jose Luis Garci'a Larred in Soria, Spain. In it a crow is seen resting on backs of a leonado vulture. According to what I read in the news commentaries, the photographer could observe how the crow traveled about two hundred meters on the vulture."
