There aren’t a whole lot of trees in Tokyo, Japan. And so the local crows are hard-pressed to find enough twigs to build their spacious nests. Fortunately, crows are notoriously clever. They are known to craft tools to snatch hard-to-obtain food, for example, and memorize the schedules of trash collectors to scavenge from.

In Tokyo, they’ve found a sturdy twig replacement. Cast-off clothes hangers!

Who knew Tokyo residents discarded so many hangers? Let’s hope they keep it up, for the sake of their local crow families!
