Ologies: Corvid Thanatology (CROW FUNERALS) with Kaeli Swift

Crows have funerals? CROWS HAVE FUNERALS.

The inky black bird with the big brain warns and maybe mourns around their fallen friends and Dr. Kaeli Swift is here to tell us all about it. As an avid wildlife researcher and corvid specialist, she’s observed death behaviors that will surprise you to your bones and ruffle your hackles while somehow also making you cry about a peanut. Also: so much inspiration to keep being yourself and to work hard toward what you love. She is a hero.
