Crows are everywhere: they are found on nearly every continent and thrive in human dominated environments. They have influenced art and literature throughout history, and whether they inspire love or hate, they have certainly impacted the hearts and minds of the humans who share their space.

Because crows are so common, it may be easy to overlook the fact that they are very intelligent and have complex behaviors and social structures, including play, tool use, communal roosting, and being able to recognize specific humans. Kaeli Swift, PhD, studies crows and other corvids (ravens, jays, and magpies), and will introduce and explain to us the world of these fascinating birds, including, of course, crow funerals.

You can find Dr. Swift on Twitter and Instagram @corvidresearch where she talks about crows, corvids, and other wildlife and plays a weekly game called #CrowOrNo to help people learn how to correctly ID and distinguish different kinds of corvids.

Science on Tap at the Kiggins is produced in partnership with Washington State University Vancouver.

*A note on advance ticket prices: there is a fee per advance ticket, but buying a ticket in advance confirms that you will have a seat at the event.

**A note on the suggested cover: Science on Tap is largely supported by money collected at the door from advance and box office ticket sales. However, we are committed to offering educational opportunities to adults who want to learn. If the event still has seats available and if $10 is a hardship for you, please come anyway and donate what you can.
