Do crows possess human qualities?

Magpies are in the same family as crows, the corvid family.

In this segment, Chris and Claire welcome John Marzluff, professor of wildlife science at the University of Washington, Ornithologist and accomplished author. In his latest book, "Gifts of the Crow: How perception, emotion, and shout allow smart birds to behave like humans," Marzluff provides a closer look at the world of corvids, from ravens, crows, blue jays and magpies, he shares more about their unique qualities, large brains and the songs they sing.

Claire is the producer of This Green Earth and a volunteer DJ on Tuesdays from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.
Co-host of KPCW's This Green Earth.
