Still Waters Posted June 8, 2017 #1 Share Posted June 8, 2017 (IP: Staff) · A small team of researchers from Austria and Sweden has found that ravens are able to remember people who trick them for at least two months. In their paper published in the journal Animal Behavior, the group describes experiments they conducted with the birds and offer some suggestions regarding how the behavior they observed might be useful to the birds in the wild. Most everyone knows that birds belonging to the corvid family are smart—magpies are notorious for their antics, as are crows. In this new effort, the researchers devised and conducted experiments designed to test whether ravens are capable of understanding different negative behaviors from different people, whether they are able to respond, and if so, for how long. https://phys.org/news/2017-06-ravens-people-months.html 3 Top Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
