Crow Uses Tools

Wow! Science Magazine is reporting on a crow that made a tool to get to food: In the experiments, a captive female crow, confronted with a task that required a curved tool (retrieving a food-containing bucket from a vertical pipe), spontaneously bent a piece of straight wire into a hooked shape — and then repeated the behavior in nine out of ten subsequent trials. That is just too cool. There’s even a video of the event that is amazing to watch.
