    Crows actually have grudges
    Alfred Hitchcock warned us about that. I'd better stop knocking on the window to scare off all those Jackdaws that pounce on the bird seed as soon as I put it out.

    Crows actually have grudges. Bastards tell their friends you didn't feed them or threw bread at them, so remember to be nice - they're smarter than me at least!

    In New Zealand they have Kea, which are large parrots. They are scarily intelligent. They are very good at stealing food from humans, they watch humans intently to mimic some of our behaviour and have been filmed using tools.

    It's quite unnerving being in an area with them as you know they are watching your every move...

    I've heard it said that Mr MM likes a cockatoo if that helps?
