The joy of sledding seems not to be species-specific.
This is superb!
That’s an amazing video if the bird is really playing a sledding game. But it sort of looks as though the bird’s just trying to pick at some food stuck under the rim of a jar lid while standing on the lid to hold it still, and each it does this the lid starts to slide down the incline. The bird might be repeating the operation, Sisyphus-like, simply because it feels more comfortable at the highest point (and/or is actually trying to avoid the snow by returning to the bare patch at the peak).
