Its a reference to Tolkien where the evil ones used black birds as spies. Now don't these guys look like spies for an evil wizard?

They´re really underappreciated birds compared to birds of prey, but they are indeed very smart!

Yes I agree 100%. The intelligence of corvids easily outweighs parrots!

They look very intimidating with those red eyes. Are they really red like that? :O

SilkenWinds Featured By Owner Sep 16, 2012  Hobbyist Photographer
Yes. They really stand out because of those ruby eyes!

Wow. That's very spooky and cool at the same time. I thought animals with red eyes were only in horror shows...guess nature likes unusual things too :)
