Nasty People Bullied Neighbors, Then Got Sweet Retribution From Their Special Friends

“The Birds” (1963) by Alfred Hitchcock imparted unique cultural importance to the image of the crow in the human mind. Scientists think that the genus Corvus birds show extraordinary talents, including complicated problem-solving, abstract reasoning, collective decision-making, and even more.

In a post on the subreddit Petty Revenge, one Redditor shared: “The day we moved into this apartment complex our across the hall neighbors started bullying us. Why? We parked in the handicap spot next to the sidewalk to the building. Why? I’m handicapped.…”. It turns out that the author’s neighbor is unauthorized parking and has written a series of threatening notes in order to pick a quarrel with them. However, the author was shielded from a bully neighbor by these fluffy buddies before writing a story on how they befriended an army of crows.

According to Marzfull, a professor of wildlife science at the University of Washington, people and animals develop a close bond similar to that of a pet when they are fed on a regular basis. In addition, the crow is able to identify the person who has fed it after an extended length of time. Professor Marzfull is certain that crows recognize faces since he has conducted the experiment for 16 years and has never left for more than a year. He also emphasized: “If you have a solid rapport with crows. Even after a lengthy absence, they will still remember you and anticipate your meal.”

Besides, the professor said that crows are able to remember individuals despite changes in clothing and haircut. Crows will identify individuals with whom they have interacted based on their varying ages, physiques, and attire. However, crows might be fooled by a fast change in haircut, so the professor’s team did not investigate this explicitly.

Professor Marzfull cautions, “Crows remember everything that is hurtful or disrupting to them, such as tossing a rock at them or having your dog pursue them. These creatures may answer with piercing cries and then vanish.” In addition, when you pick up a wounded, dead, or juvenile crow off the ground, other crows will see you as a danger and behave aggressively, much like hawks, eagles, owls, and hunters of other natural prey.
