Smart, yes, but some American crows have been known for quite a while now to do the same thing by placing nuts just behind the wheels of _parked_ cars, then just sit and wait for a car to pull out, crack the nut, then dive down and get the tasty, if now treaded, nut meat inside, without having to worry about virtually any traffic at all.
