Bees. Wasps. Crows. They seem so different (besides scaring the beejeebees out of some folks). Two are insects. One is a bird. Yet, they all three have something in common (excluding fear phobias). Each of them can remember a human face. This means if they see the same human face multiple times, they will remember it. Not just that day, but way past that (far more than some humans I have met). Crows can remember too. Faces. People. Even actions – i.e. garbage truck shows up on this day and on this road.
Pretty amazing for two species that we (those of us who are not Ornithologists and Entomologists) would never assume could exist due to a couple of factors. Lack of awareness, misconception, and misperception. Even now knowing, would you change your behavior upon seeing them (assuming you can’t suffer death or serious injury if a bee or wasp stings you)?
