Having looked at the masks used by the researchers to test crow face recognition, I can say that I would react to the "dangerous face" the same way the corvids did. That mask is very different from a normal human face, so I'm not surprised the crows could recognise it. You could say that the mask was to a normal human face what a bike helmet is to a normal human head.
