As soon as the video hit the internet, it invited a lot of comments from the netizens. "I stared at the bird video for 10 minutes start trying to figure out what was going on. Your photo helped me sleep tonight," said a user while another said, "Nah he's just showing off his sick gains." 

Kaeli Swift, whose Twitter bio says that she holds a 'PhD in crow death behaviours' explains this is a very normal thing to do for birds. She wrote on Twitter, "There’s a very strange (uncredited) video of crow making the rounds on reddit. Here’s the deal. First, this is a large-billed crow, which is why the face is looking a little out of proportion."
