    I'm currently building an avian race for my world, so I'd like to know if you guys know intelligent bird species

    If you are a bird yourself, I'd like you to specify your specie ^^

    Thank you all ^^

    This so very much. They have been observed using tools and I remember an experiment in which crows solved simple math problems for food. Relative to brain size, they're hella smart.

    But the real question is : Do you pray Kluex ?

    Well, I was blowing on a piece of grass to whistle and a Grackle started to communicate with me, so I have no idea if Grackles and their related family are also intelligent birds, perhaps not as intelligent as Ravens however.

    He talkin' bout me!

    It could be just me headcanoning but I really like to think of corvids as streetsmart compared to parrots' booksmart. Do you know corvids can also talk?

    I fed a blue jay some bread and it offered me a stick. I don't know if that counts though

    Okay, you might want a nice big golden temple for kluex, he demands the blood of the fallen warriors. and our people deserve to ascend to the aether and regain our wings. I can even fund some of it to you

    My Avian OC's last name is based off the Grosbeak, which is related to like a billion different types of birds.

    I don't know how you're making the world exactly, but if you're planing individuals, how 'bout a cuckatoo that does nothing but scream into cups?
