The idea that a crow can grasp the concept of fun is almost too much for me but I know they are incredibly smart.
After you watch this video look at some of the other foreign ones. The ones of the 2 cats fighting and being harassed by 2 birds is fascinating. Are those pigeons or crows?

That's so cool! But now he needs a buddy, which is so much more fun than doing alone.

It's amazing, n.k., how you always seem to find these fun, interesting and sometimes provocative vids.

Thanks so much.

My pleasure and when I hear from people how much they enjoy them I am inspired to find some more.

I've realized the term 'bird brain' does not apply to crows.
This video should convince any doubters.

The cat fight one is more interesting to me. The aggressive bird has it in for the lighter cat and is using the black cat. The rooftop video could be seen as the bird just trying to get something out of the jar lid and not finding a stable spot.

Why not? Animals have intelligence and that includes humor.

I thought the same thing. Since the crow constantly pecked at the lid; it was like there was food still stuck in the threads of the lid. Maybe it was a peanut butter jar lid and not a mayonnaise lid?

I always knew that crows were smart but watching that video......well that is remarkable.
They eat a variety of foods: insects, vegetables, fruits, meats....
