A Russian family captured the moments when a seemingly intelligent crow began skating down the side of an icy roof top on the lid of a jar.

The crow slid down the side of the roof multiple times and even pecking at the lid when it became wedged in the show.

"Maybe it's teasing us," said one of the children amongst the 'film crew' who spotted this 'crowboarding'.

It's common knowledge that crows intelligently use tools for different purposes and according to RT.com the skill this crow is displaying is often used to get food – although we can't work out how.

This bird however seems to be just having fun.

One speculation was that the crow had seen a human snowboarding and had decided to try it out for himself.
