The video opens with a crow hopping from one dustbin to another with a used plastic bottle in its mouth.

A crow is the Internet’s latest ‘hero’ and it’s for all the right reasons. A video of the crow, which is now being shared by many, has left people with questions about human behaviour and appreciation for the particular Corvus.

While many tweeted about the intelligence of crows as a species, there were some who compared this gesture with that of humans. A few also voiced their thoughts that if a bird can throw an empty bottle in a dustbin, then why humans can’t do the same.

“There’s a lot to learn from the animals,” wrote a Twitter user. “Better than humans,” commented another. “Too bad for the planet that humans came along,” tweeted a third.

Here’s how others reacted to the video:

A Twitter user was also reminded of an elephant doing something similar.

Kaeli Swift, a crow researcher, also dished out her opinion on the video. In a Twitter thread she wrote it’s not reasonable to assume that “non-human animal possess a concept of recycling.” However, adding that the particular crow seen in the video is probably trained to perform such tasks.
