Recent studies have revealed that crows are highly intelligent animals with complex social systems. This documentary shows them engaged in high-level tasks such as making and using tools, communicating with over 250 distinct calls, and even recognizing and remembering individual human faces.

Watch as researchers track a group of young crows to see if they can learn and remember information passed on to them by their parents. The surprising results of this study, and the intimate footage of these often misunderstood birds, will likely change your view of them forever.
