enjoy winter

I have this wimp app on my ipad and this vid of a  crow having some fun popped up the other day. I am guilty of sending vids of this nature  to my family.

Jeffrey gets quite few. “I think I have seen this one” was his reply to this crow sledding.

Perhaps  you have not.

Wiki info

“The crow genus makes up a third of the species in the Corvidae family. Crows appear to have evolved in Asia from the corvid stock, which had evolved in Australia. The collective name for a group of crows is a flock or a murder.[1]

Recent research has found some crow species capable of not only tool use but also tool construction[2] and meta-tool use. Crows are now considered to be among the world’s most intelligent animals[3] with an encephalization quotient approaching that of some apes[citation needed]. The Jackdaw and the European Magpie have been found to have a nidopallium approximately the same relative size as the functionally equivalent neocortex in chimpanzees and humans, and significantly larger than is found in the gibbon.[4]”
