A wealthy landowner is trying to get rid of a crow nesting in a watchtower on his land. He takes his rifle to try to shoot the crow, but every time he enters or even nears the tower, the crow flies away into the nearby forest, where it will stay until the man leaves again, at which point it will fly back to the nest. The man comes up with a clever solution to kill the crow, but the crow surprises the man by having a skill the man did not expect, thus outwitting the man. The man's persistence pays off, however, and he finds a definite limit to the crow's skill, and he ultimately is able to shoot it. What skill does the crow possess, and what was the man's solution?
