Now that is one smart bird (or, corvids are amazing)

Just check this out.  This bird is solving a puzzle worthy of a flash escape game — he has to work out eight distinct steps to retrieve the food, and he does.  No other bird has been set a puzzle like this and solved it — though I’m not sure any other bird was given the opportunity.  Is 007 the Crow really a genius, or is he just a high performer that they’ve managed to study?  Either way, it’s pretty amazing.
