As if I needed a new reason to fear crows, this bird comes along.

Many of us probably think of birds as dumb, but one expert has set out to prove us wrong.

In a special for the BBC, Dr. Alex Taylor set up an eight-step puzzle for a crow to solve in order to get an edible reward, The Huffington Post reported.

Apparently, that's not a problem for the crow, who has been dubbed "007," and for good reason.

After analyzing the puzzle for only a few seconds, 007 takes off and goes about solving the puzzle in just a few minutes.

Taylor called the crow "one of the smartest" he's seen in captivity and the puzzle as "one of the most complex tests of the animal mind ever."
