One man in Singapore has highlighted just how intelligent and loyal crows are after he shot a video petting one on its back during its regular visit to the man's HDB flat.

A video of the friendly black bird was uploaded on Facebook on Jan. 13.

Visits in the afternoons

According to the man, the young crow had been visiting him at his flat over the past few months in the afternoon.

This was after he gave it some bread and peanuts previously.

The man said the bird would just "hang around and then proceed to go on with his crow life".

Anticipated pets

More amazingly, the man demonstrated how he would pet the crow on his head, back, and beak.

The bird, in anticipation of being petted, even puffed up its youngling feathers to show it appreciates the human touch.

This was what the man wrote as his caption:

So this young crow has been coming to my house every now and then for the past few months. At first I only gave him some food such as breads and peanuts. Then more often he would visit me in the afternoon just to hang around and then proceed to go on with his crow life. Recently he have trusted me more and allowed me to rub him. In fact he enjoyed being rub much like a cat as you can see from the way he puffed up and showed me his back expecting a rub. Crows are highly intelligent and they do recognise people. If you treat them with respect and love, they will give the same back to you!
