    Why did the crow slide down the window?




    WACKY WEB WEEK

    Why did the crow slide down the window?


    By Kathleen Atkins

    Why did the crow roll down the conveniently located slope (provided by a snow-covered parked car)? Before you start thinking about "why the chicken crossed the road" jokes to account for the actions of a crow, you might ponder any encounters you've had with these intelligent birds.

    The full text of this column is posted at windowssecrets.com/wacky-web-week/why-did-the-crow-slide-down-the-window/ (free content, opens in a new window/tab).

    Columnists typically cannot reply to comments here, but do incorporate the best tips into future columns.

    Weird, I have never known crows to be of the playful type of animals.
    Apparently, they also make the worst kind of a squeegee for windshield snow removal.
    I think crows should stick to the script as proposed by Carlos Castaneda .

    Members of the Crow family are highly intelligent, frequently indulging in play like activities both in the air and when perched. Away from breeding territories, I've enjoyed the antics of Ravens play fighting with a Peregrine, also a Rook that seemed to take great delight in hanging upside-down beneath an overhead electricity cable then dropping off to fly back to repeat the process several times over.
