A Stinky Surprise

Last Friday I showed how bored birds can cause car trouble.¬† This week another bird — who isn’t bored at all! — creates a future mess.

In the video above, a common raven at the Juneau, Alaska airport decides to cache a bit of salmon in the grill of a rental car.  He flips it and hides it in various spots in the grill.

The video’s author says the raven is hiding food from his own reflection and challenging himself when he pecks at the window.

I’m not so sure he’s confused by his reflection¬† … but no matter what this raven is thinking the next person to rent the car will be in for a stinky surprise!
