It’s actually impossible to measure how many fucks a corvid give because there is no device sensitive enough to register such a tiny amount.

science/animal side of tumblr… explain to me the birb thing

Tail Pulling is a behavior noted in many corvids. The practical application is to create a distraction that will allow the birb to make off with the target’s food. Imagine being in the lunch room and a large fellow has a Twinkie you covet. You can’t just take it from him because he’ll defend his Twinkie. But if you thwap him on the back of his neck and then dash around to snag the Twinkie while he investigates, you stand a decent chance of enjoying spongey goodness. This is basically that in birb form.

Except corvids don’t only do this as a distraction. Sometimes they seem to just being doing it to mess with other animals/birbs. But to use my lunch room analogy, there are times you might thwap someone sneakily on the back of the neck just for amusement. Primates exhibit behavior that appears to be just be annoying other animals for amusement. Given how intelligent crows are, its not unlikely that this is a manifestation of an innate desire to just fuck with someone else for the fun of it. Such as this from the link above:

THANK YOU FOR THE BIRB KNOWLEDGE

Damn. That birb startled that dog so much that he forgot he was a dog.

No, I’m taking this message all for myself — all of the Beauty Energy that would go to the other ten people goes directly to me. I can feel my features being airbrushed as I type this, becoming more striking, my skin smoother. I’m better, cuter, stronger with each passing moment. And this isn’t even my final transformation, nor is it my first. You innocent children, you beautiful, kind naive souls, you keep sending me these chain messages and I keep hoarding them. I’ve been hoarding them for years, since before you were born. I will be the prettiest boy you’ve ever seen and you’re only making me stronger
