If you live in Vancouver, it’s safe to assume you are well acquainted with crows. But did you know that crows can remember your face for years, solve puzzles too hard for human toddlers, and know to only use crosswalks when the light is red? As a postdoctoral researcher at UBC, Ben Freeman has studied crows and their raven relatives. Find out how they live alongside people as Ben shares various studies of crow intelligence, and explains some of the fascinating behaviours these engaging birds have developed.

We gratefully acknowledge that the land on which we gather and help steward is the unceded and traditional territories of the xʷməθkwəy̓əm (Musqueam), Skwxwú7mesh (Squamish) Nation, and Səl̓ílwətaʔ/Selilwitulh (Tsleil-Waututh) Nation.
