Now you’re going to think I’m obsessed with crows. I’m not. (At least I don’t think I am. In any case, that’s between me and my “doctor.”) My husband sent me this link to this story, including video, from Wired magazine. Again, these birds are demonstrating intelligence and creative thinking. Check out this story and links, and let me know your thoughts: http://www.wired.com/wiredscience/2009/08/aesopscrows/
Questions: Who was this fellow Aesop they refer to in the article? What did he do that he is now famous for? Do you know of stories from your own culture that are like Aesop’s? Could you write a modern-day fable? What would be the moral or lesson?
