When I was a kid (about 40 years ago) we decided to build a fort in the woods. It all went well excavated an opening in the ground till it was about 12*18 by 4 foot deep.

Then we stole some fence from the beltway and started to build a roof over the hole with the piping and fence to be covered with plastic and leaves and dirt, evidently the crows in the area saw it as an invasion at that point 2-3 of them started circling and divebombing us while screeching after about 10 minutes they left and we thought all was good about 30 minutes later we had 10 crows then 20 an hour later we had probably 50 of them circling and screeching, we could actually see cars on 495 pulling over to see what the hell was going on....so we left before a cop pulled over and saw the ripped out fencing we had stolen, we had to complete the work at night and even after it was done for the first couple of months it was not unusual to see 10-15 crows show up to give us shit when we went there.

Here's a project to teach wild crows to use a 'vending machine'

http://www.wireless.is/projects/crows/

The goal of this project is to create a device that will autonomously train crows. So far we've trained captive crows to deposit dropped coins they find on the ground in exchange for peanuts. The next step is to see how quickly we can get wild crows to learn the system, and then how quickly they can learn it from each other. Once we've got system down for teaching coin collection we'll move to seeing how flexibly they can learn *other* tasks, like collecting garbage, sorting through discarded electronics, or maybe even search and rescue. The crows continue to amaze us with their abilities, so who knows?
