At talk, learn why we like corvids just as they like us

The corvid is a complex creature. Like humans, corvids, which include crows, ravens and jays, have complicated emotions, and they think, plan and reconsider their actions.

The corvids also like to watch us humans, as we like to watch them. Sometimes the corvids even bring us little gifts.

Corvid expert, author and professor John Marzluff will talk about his 2012 book “Gifts of the Crows” at a free presentation at 2 p.m. Sunday at Everett Public Library Auditorium, 2702 Hoyt Ave., Everett.

Guests will learn that corvids and humans have many other things in common, such as the ability to frolic, show passion and wrath, take risks and have awareness of the world around them.
