The sliding crow.

Here is a nice post about the sliding crow video on youtube

It sums up my view; it is hard not to see this as an amazing example of tool use and possibly play by the crow, the crows behavior seems very deliberate. If it isn’t playing perhaps it means to scrap the snow, it is however possible that it is just pecking at the object and doesn’t mean to slide, from this one short video it is impossible to know for sure.
