Yes, certain species of birds do work together to gather food, mainly to feed their young. The offspring of the Western Bluebird will often help their parents feed their other young.
Rooks, another species of bird, were also seen working together to acquire food in a German study.
According to scientificamerican.com, the rook is the first studied non-primate that successfully performed a task in which the animals needed to cooperate with each other in order to get food. The rooks were able to figure out that, in order to move the food toward themselves, they needed to simultaneously pull two ends of a string. Rooks are related to crows and are social animals!
