390. Quickie Web: Video: Bright Birds July 23, 2007Posted by Matt Fleming, PsyD in Quickie Web, Video.
Here are quick clips of two birds coming up with some Bright Ideas (via Neatorama):
The first is a bird that hitches a ride on a moving car. I watched the entire thing to verify that the little guy wasn’t stuck (he isn’t). You only need to watch a few seconds to appreciate this crafty fellow.
The second is a of a tool-using bird. This New Caledonian crow eventually bends a piece of wire to form a hook to retrieve an object in a tube. The clip is 38 seconds long. Link here.
