A bird on a snowboard - level 1, A12

This video is from Russia. It is something fantastic. A crow was on a roof. It took plastic. It used it as a snowboard. Then it went up again and it wanted to go down, but the roof wasn’t good for snowboarding. So the crow went up and it used a better side. The crow liked snowboarding very much.

Crows are very clever. They can use things if they want to get food. They remember a lot of things and they can plan things in the future. They are very clever animals.

Experts say that crows can work with things like gorillas. Crows can also change things if they want to get what they want. They have good thinking. They learn new things from parents but they can have new ideas too.
