Hard to believe he wouldn't fly or try to get away.

Looked like he got tagged by a porcupine.
That was pretty cool.

Porcupine quills?

Remember this one where a dolphin asked a diver for help?

Yup. Porcupine quills.

Apparently the crow was pestering them to help him out. Crows are some of the smartest birds known. They will even use crude tools to get food- this has been observed in the wild. Not too long ago it was thought that only primates used tools.

I've seen them on the side of the road and when a vehicle approached, they would all shout "CAR."

LOL! Yup. I have seen that too.

I have watched crows place things in the road to get cars to run them over to open them up (bones, nuts, even packages of food they couldn't open) and when the tires of the cars don't hit the item they will fly down and move it into a better position.

The ones that have been observed using tools are Catalonian Crows, but I think that they are all really smart.

That is an awesome video.

Some birds have been observed using sticks to poke bugs out of holes in trees so they could be eaten. Nature is amazing. And I believe many animals have more thought processes then we give them credit for.
