spermologus is served water by some nice humans in Supetar Croatia While jackdaws are still listed as in the genus Corvus with other crows in most literature many workers argue that the two species of jackdaw western C monedula and daurian C dauuricus should be in their own genus Coloeus Indeed they have long been listed in the sub genus Coloeus and a 2007 paper looking at the genetic diversity using mitochondrial DNA of certain species of corvids supports the assertion that jackdaws should be in their own genus In fact the International Ornithological Union and Birds of South Asia The Ripley Guide by Rasmussen and Anderton both list them as genus Coloeus Semantics aside these small corvids have long been recognized as being morphologically distinct from the rest of the genus Corvus They are small the smallest of genus Corvus and very sociable as evidenced by this video They are a common urban bird and thrive just as well in human dominated landscapes as they do in remote landscapes like a number of other corvids However jackdaws also differ from other crows in that they nest in crevices holes much to the distress of many a chimney owner And while I m on the topic of crows that are proposed as distinct from the others another sub genus Corvultur has been previously proposed for the fan tailed raven C rhipidurus white necked raven C albicollis and thick billed raven C crassirostris due to their close geographical relationship and unusually thick bills However this division is not very robust and a 2012 study placed white necked and thick billed ravens as closely related but fan taileds sorted out closer to pied crows C albus and then common ravens C corax and brown necked ravens C ruficollis However unlike the Corvultur both jackdaw species still remained very distinct from the rest of genus Corvus forming the most basal group All of that said I hope you enjoy this video of a jackdaw getting a nice cool drink of water after coercing some primates into opening a bottle and pouring a cap full for it Preview image for this post by John Haslam from Dornoch Scotland Share this Share on Tumblr Like this Like Loading This entry was posted in

by The Corvid Blog 6 Replies I tend to leave incidental posts responses to Tumblr posts and Tumblr replies to the Tumblr incarnation of this blog trying to keep this official Coyot es space more for original content and longer posts However this reply was lengthy enough and contained enough original material beyond the initial reply that I thought it would be good to post it here This comment is a reply to my correction of the source page for the incorrect NowYouKno fact on Tumblr I appreciate you pointing out this distinction though manufacture versus use is sort of a continuum depending on how we are defining manufacture It is true that New Caledonian crows are amazing tool makers something I give lectures about on a nearly annual basis when I talk about animal culture but more than three species make tools Chimpanzees of course are tool makers along with documentation of manufacture in orangutans mandrills and Asian elephants This is leaving out animals that develop tools or can be taught to develop tools in captivity ex bonobos hyacinth macaws and a Goffin s cockatoo just to name a few Also depending on how complex the manufacture gorillas have been observed breaking off large sticks for stabilization woodpecker finches have to break off cactus spines to use them and more recently they are modifying non native blackberry spines and bottle nosed dolphins have to select and break sponges off their substrate to use them I still assert that we will probably find a lot more tool use and manufacture in the wild the more chances we get to observe different species in the wild There are certainly many anecdotal and incidental observations of many more species creating and using tools However what you have to keep in mind is that if an animal gets along fine without making and using tools then there s not point in them doing so Tool manufacture and modification while really cool to us isn t always necessary for other animals In chimpanzees and humans for example tool use is integral in how we forage and exist in the world but for other species tool manufacture and use may only be needed on occasion when a situation calls for it In the case of New Caledonian crows they like woodpecker finches live in places that lack woodpeckers This is significant because it leaves open the niche that specializes in locating removing and eating wood boring insects Rather than spending the time to evolve physical adaptations to do this like woodpeckers have these two species use tools to the same ends Arguably there is a distinction between woodpecker finches which are actually most likely in the tanager family despite the common name and New Caledonian crows when it comes to the cognitive department What happens when nature takes a bird already a part of a large brained cognitively complex genus of birds Corvus and puts it on an

  • About Me | The Corvid Blog
    if that means anything I read a book called Corvus by Esther Woolfsten sp but I was not very impressed by her account as she kept her poor birds under lock and key Barkley was never restrained in any way We were never sure if he was stunted in growth We thought he must be as he was probably the best part of 3 years old but he was about 2 3 the size of the other crows I would like to think he found a mate but I have to say the other crows were not impressed by his lifestyle and objected strenuously to his repeated attempts to join them We were not too certain he had survived but always thought there was a reasonable chance Do you know much about ravens cheers dyan Andrew Cordani July 31 2013 at 2 34 am I saw this it popped up on an RSS feed and thought you d like Crow Using meta Tools http milkandcookies com link 405544 Vicki Wingo Grant October 10 2013 at 4 13 am Thank you for sharing your passion in this blog I ve been a long time corvid watcher and reading your blog inspired an experiment this summer I have a plot at a community garden in Pleasanton N California Along side my tomatoes a huge crop of hungry young scrub jays sprouted in the nearby bushes a rolling circus of raucous up tempo uber competitive did I say noisy ADHD birds continually chasing each other and pestering their parents I wondered how long it would take to teach these newly fledged youngsters to come to a whistle when paired with a tossed worm Answer 3x The bolder older and more curious jays dealt with the First Encounter Scary Squirmy Worm The others watched and learned Observing Race to the Worm Defensive Worm Hiding and the subsequent learning process buried worms in tanbark do not stay put and Pound Your Brother made trips to the garden plot last all morning For two or three weeks I became a well trained worm digger tosser Hat or no hat those opportunistic birds recognized me as a snack dispenser Even before I whistled What fun to watch smart birds learn their world Christian Falk October 14 2013 at 1 17 pm Hello Jennifer today i saw your beautiful blog I love corvids and i got a website and a blog too Hope you can speak a little bit german because of

Thank you so much for sharing this story It was great I shared it with some of my research partners as well The Corvid Blog Post author October 29 2013 at 8 57 am You didn t do anything wrong I just hadn t had a chance to reply and approve the comment No worries gcrcrisis January 21 2014 at 9 16 am I met Prof Nicky Clayton recently which reminded me how interesting corvids are I love watching the flying antics of ravens and hear their calls when I go walking along the cliffs in south Devon UK I have tweeted your Q A session on Jan 27th Keep up the good work The Corvid Blog Post author February

enjoying your blog Is there a way to follow I can t seem to find the spot to click The Corvid Blog Post author April 1 2014 at 6 32 pm I m not sure there is a follow function but I do also post alerts to my Facebook page and Tumblr if that helps out Jen Das April 21 2014 at 11 21 pm Jenn I just recently saw the PBS special on corvids and wondered if you had any thoughts on how to interact with them in a suburban neighborhood I was thinking of setting up something for them to do on my deck I may sound terribly naive if so I apologize Andrea May 19 2014 at 5 56 pm Can you tell me a bit about the normal development of a baby blue jay scrub Specifically when does she lose her pin feathers and be able to fully fly I found her in a suspicious situation cat nearby After removal of the cats I decided at the advice of rehabbers to just observe and hope she would be able to fly soon In the meantime her parents fed her very consistently and regularly but on day 16 after finding her I took her to local rehab center because her leg had swollen up in the hypotarsal region and she was having difficulty perching The rehabber told me her pin feathers are still there and there might be some underlying developmental issue beside having a knot in the tendon which rehabber is giving physical therapy to aid in healing any ideas suggestions thanks so much The Corvid
