Il Corvo Intelligente

Crow Uses Physics To Get Food
Day 178 of My Italian Learning Journal*
_____________________

One of my favorite magazines is Popular Science, which I have been reading since I was a young boy. The recent issue has a section about the intelligence of animals. One of the brightest is the crow. After reading the article I got curious and googled youtube.com and found an especially interesting short video of a crow demonstrating how he is an amazing and creative problem solver. The video is less than two minutes long so you may want to click the link under the picture above at right and see this amazing bird get food using laws of physics. (Next is a practice script in Italian -- grammar corrections are welcome.)

Ascolta Questo:
  • Uno degli animali più intelligenti è il corvo.
