scientists videotaped this bird making tools to get a nut he couldnt get to. :-O

that's a dang smart bird.
at one point he realizes the splinter he has is too long for the job and you see him break it to a better length to get the nut.

i have a guinea pig that is way smarter than a guinea pig should be. she doesnt make tools but she seems to problem solve. i think she should team up with this bird.

That's really cool! He went to an awful lot of work to get the nuts.

That's so awesome! What a smarty (and so cute when he angles his head to try to see what he's doing!).

Crows and ravens use tools!

Our bird overlords will not be benevolent. Think way worse than the pigs.

I love birds so much. They are smart cookies! I want an African Grey so bad.
