I am currently in New Caledonia doing research on the enigmatic New Caledonian Crow (with researchers from the University of Auckland's Language, Culture, and Cognition Lab.) We just put together a video of the crows making predictions for the semifinals and finals of the World Cup! This species of crow is well-known for its high level of cognitive abilities. It manufactures complex tools in the wild, and has passed many standard cognitive tests with flying colors. But can it predict which team will emerge victorious?
Check out the world cup video here:
Watch the tool-making New Caledonian crow play "crowball" and make some predictions for the World Cup. For more on the intelligence of the New Caledonian crow check out https://www.facebook.com/LCCLab?ref=hl
