In the experiment, the crows had to use a short stick to drag a stone from a narrow tube. Then use another long stick, the crow had placed the stone in another tube, which allowed them to release the platform with a piece of meat. Each stage of the task were isolated from the other a wooden shield, so that crow could see only one part at a time. To further complicate the test, the scientists randomly changed the positions of the two tubes to crow focused on memory and found the right tool.
