Curr Biol. 2015 Jan 19;25(2):R69-R71. doi: 10.1016/j.cub.2014.12.001.


New research indicates that crows are capable of matching stimuli on the basis of analogical relations: that is, similarity of size, color and shape. This may be the first evidence for spontaneous analogical reasoning outside of the primate order.
