She Feeds Crows At The Park, Then Shows Up In A Mask Holding A Dead Crow

June 6, 2018

Unlike the majority of animals, crows react strongly to seeing a fellow member of their species has died.

To study exactly what may be going on on, Kaeli Swift, a Ph.D. candidate at the University of Washington's Avian Conservation Lab in Seattle, developed an experiment that involved exposing local crows to a dead taxidermied crow in order to study their reaction.

"It's really incredible," she said. "They're all around in the trees just staring at you and screaming at you."

Swift calls her experiments "crow funerals" and they are the focus of her research.
