common raven (corvus corax)
One of my favorite books in my early twenties was "Of Wolves And Men" by Barry Lopez, and he makes several asides to the intelligence of ravens and how they are frequently associated with wolves. Ravens are related to crows – and they belong to the same group of birds known as corvids.
In this amazing Ted Talk, Joshua Klein demonstrates how intelligent these birds really are.
