While that is a very interesting rumor, it does not seem that crows are particularly fond of choosing and collecting shiny objects. They haven’t been known to hide, store, or caches anything other than the food they need to survive. Crows, also commonly referred to as ravens or rooks, can be a medium or larger species of bird that are present on nearly every continent except for South America and are considered to be one of the world’s most intelligent species of bird. 

While they love to do a bit of digging and investigating, there is no evidence to suggest that they aim to find a shiny object. Instead, they typically enjoy handling various things in their beaks and love playing. Juvenile birds play with many different kinds of inedible objects by picking them up, pecking them, and even hiding them from the rest of the flock. Wild crows usually play with sticks, acorns, stones, and other random objects that are easy to find. Head over to Animal Fate’s website to learn more about what crows eat.
