Manipulative Crow Gets Humans To Do Its Bidding

This bird has some tricks up its wings. We humans should probably give the animal kingdom more credit.

When this crow wants water, it knows the people nearby hold the key to getting an ice-cold drink.

Watch this crow tell the bystanders he wants into that water bottle, stat. 

Of course, some crows are smarter than others. The crow above just wanted a drink -- totally feasible. This guy below seems to want to fly off with a frying pan. It's not a great plan, but he definitely pulls out plenty of tricks to try it.
