    Smart? Well everyday I go out front at work and there they are. They follow me down the lane to the seating area. Wow. Every time I go out now they love shreddies . Always picking up 4 and going away and coming back. Today they followed me from work across the street to the bus stop and sat atop the hydro pole until I got on the bus. Their a beautiful animal. Their huge here in NL. About twice the size of the.ones in Ontario .
    Its pretty interesting having 4 crows follow me daily.
