Carrion crows (Corvus corone corone) are unbelievable birds! They can form complex societies, where relatives live together and cooperate in raising the chicks and defending the territory. Such intense social life is correlated with surprising cognitive capacities that rival those of many primates.
Exploring the word of crows is an endless adventure.

Vittorio Baglione

In the "Sobarriba" upland you can observe not only cooperative crows,
but a great variety of wild bird and mammal species
