The phrase “bird brained” isn’t appropriate here. This crow, nicknamed 007, shows almost unbelievable problem solving skills as it solves 8 puzzles, in the right order, in the right way to access food.
The bird had seen the individual elements before but this was the first time the pieces had been arranged like this. Watch the video and ask yourself whether you’d do so well in the Crystal Maze or problem solving TV show. It’s impressive stuff.

Do you think we’ve under estimated the intelligence of animals as a whole? Or do we over credit animals; is it wrong to do things like delay sea defense projects in order to study the possible impact it might have on bird-life in the area?
