The snow in eastern Canada may have caused a headache for commuters, but some, including one crow in Russia, are having fun with the white stuff.
It is unclear exactly what the bird is doing, but it appears to be 'shredding the gnar' using a disc-shaped object that looks like the lid of a jar as a snowboard.
The crow slides down one side of the roof while cautiously flapping its wings especially as it picks up speed. Then it picks up the disc in its beak and flies back to the apex of the roof for more fun. For its second run, it tries to descend a rather bare part of the roof, but that doesn't work so the bird flies back to the top on the hunt for more powder.
In case you are wondering what the people are saying in the video, according to RT the kids are wondering if the bird is teasing them.
Crows are often thought to be one of the smartest species of birds. Researchers have seen them using a variety of tools to attract and process food including hooded crows using bread crumbs for bait-fishing and New Caledonian crows dropping nuts onto streets and waiting for cars to crush them open.
While this crow isn't using its skills to eat and ensure survival, it certainly has found a way to do what a lot of jealous skiers and snowboarders might find jealous. How great would it be to fly to the top of mountain with your equipment and not have to worry about paying for a helicopter?
