Do crows gossip?

Two Grackles gossiping

Here at the edge of the wood we notice our crows really do talk up a storm. But what are they saying? University Researchers in Seattle, while wearing masks, captured seven crows, tagged them, then let them go. Whenever the scientists walked around campus with the masks on, the crows would “scold” and dive-bomb them. The researches learned that along with the ability to recognize individuals, the crows could also harbor a grudge. Soon their crow family members were doing the same thing. It seems that crows take the golden rule very seriously. So when you see a crow, a person, or any animal, treat that creature the way you would liked to be treated. No one wants to be embarrassed  by a crow.
