Video: The Snowboarding Crow
Crows are among the most intelligent of birds, have long been believed to be representatives of the Spirit World, and it appears that they like to have fun as well, as this remarkable video, evidently shot in Russia or elsewhere in Eastern Europe, attests.
Crows aren't particularly popular with Brooklyn's wild Quaker Parrots, because they are such artful thieves. When crows show up, the parrots form an effective defense perimeter and ward them off, fearing that they will steal the parrots' eggs.
