Thanks, everyone, for helping me make my Bird-of-the-Day Celebration a wonderful day.
Dad, Uncle Geno and i had a fun day full of laughter and feisty fun.
Dad n Uncle Geno went to a special showing of Jean-Luc Goddard's "CONTEMPT" from 1963.
Dad enjoyed the visual style, but neither of them liked the film very much.
Guess you can't like 'em all.

Be good to your humans and have a wonderful day.

  Hi Cheyenne
Mom and Robin are staying until Monday, Tanya and Mary leave Sunday, though. If Donna and Therese are having brunch again, though, they will probably stay for that.
There are some guys from the borough digging in the back at the bottom of a cliff, into some sewers. They came and knocked on the door this morning to let mom know what was going on. When she got back from the center, they were sitting on the bench in the yard and hadn't tried to go down the cliff yet.
Not much new here today. Mom did the recovery room today, and there were just turtles, ducks, and pigeons in there, so no big thrill. The wood turtle is so handsome, though, with his orange body and pretty eyes. The snapping turtle let mom pick him up out of his pond so she could change the water, too. She usually has good luck with snappers, though. This afternoon mom and her sister are going to Olympic gym to sign up for a month of swimming. It should stretch out the summer for a few more weeks, at least.
I hope you are having a great day, getting lots of sunshine, warm weather, and love. Hugs, Falco

Come visit me, Gizmo and Divo, mom loves you both, Willie, Peppino & Falco.

  Hi Cheyenne
It's great to hear from you, it's been awhile! Mom and Aunt Robin will be roomies for Parrot Palooza this year, and Mary and Tanya will be at the same hotel. They are all staying at the same place as last year. Mom will be arriving on Thursday, and Mary and Tanya on Friday. Robin will be in Wednesday.
Mom is getting some work done in the kitchen, and it's finally nearing completion.
We are all doing great! Are you going to the milonga tonight? Hope to see you there! Hugs, Falco

  Hi Cheyenne
Great to see you! Hope you and mom are enjoying the summer. Thanks for the hatchday wishes, too. Mom got 8 of those cotton candy things from Foster and Smith a little while back, because she knows how much I love them.
Last night was a fantastic time for all of us, I think. Thanks to Kiddo, Taz, Kaji and Lizzie, and especially Panther for another great milonga! We all had a terrific time.
Mom went to Madonna del Castello last night for their festa, and got a hot sausage sandwich, melanzane rolatini, and pizza fritta to bring home. That's eggplant stuffed with ricotta and fried pizza dough for those not acquainted with such delicacies. Mom doesn't make eggplant all that often any more, and never fries dough! It was sure tasty.
Today is a bright sunny pool day, and later, a birdie kind of evening. I hope you are having a wonderful summer day and that your feet aren't too tired from all that dancing. Hugs, Falco

Thanks so much for flying by to congratulate me for winning Bird Of The Day. :) I sure am enjoying every minute of it, and I even got some more blueberries and blackberries today to celebrate. It's a hot and sunny day here today. The heatwave won't last long though, more rain is on the way so that will help to cool the weather down. Have a good day. From, Mayo

stands in the royal courtyard with all her friends Chyna, Willie, Kacey, Pearl & Silver, Kaji & Lizzie,Finnegan, Alex ,Hulk, Raffi, Sam I Am, Sugar,Cookie,Chipper, Panther, Kiddo, Angel & Pepper,Zippy,Gus MikeyD,Sky,Flitzer,Stormy, Oki, Jenny Lynn, Peabody& Sherman, TiPaul,, Peanut, Rocket, BonBon, Laka & Pookie, Ms BB,Rudy, Picabo & Squeaky,Dixie,Blue & the Crew, Rocket, Dandy, Cheyenne, Cocnut, Chico, Poco & Pico, Kahlua & Tango,Cori, Piddy & Paddy, Stormy, Molly, Dino,Taz & Coconut surrounding her. they are waiting for the UPS truck to arrive with their package of bees. it is the perfect time to release the bees as the sun is slowly setting. Hulk screams i see the truck coming up the royal driveway. the UPS driver sees all the birds standing in the courtyard and fearing he is in the Alfred Hitchcock movie "THE BIRDS" birds, slams on the brakes and takes the package of bees and flings it as hard as he can at the huge crowd of birds standing there before hightailing it out of there at a high speed. Queen Boo Boo yells "OH No" and Cookie leaps into the air like super bird and catches the box of bees midair and gently places them on the ground. everybody gathers around the box and Queen Boo Boo makes a tiny hole in the box so she can see the bees. the bees aren't happy and they don't know what is going on but they aren't angry either.Queen Boo Boo hunts for the Queen Honey Bee to place her in the hive first. Willie says let me see and spots the tiny Bee wearing a tiny crown so he knows its the Queen Bee. Raffiremoves the middle trays on the super and Queen Boo Boo ever so gently picks the small Queen Bee up and places her in the middle of the hive. Pearl and Silver who are dressed in appropriate bee gear gently spray the little girl honey bees with sugar water to relax them before Sam I Am gently shakes them into the middle of the hive with their queen. Pearl & Silver then very gently start placing the removed trays back into the hive being careful not to hurt or crush any of the bees. Kaji & Lizzie seal up all the entrances to the hive until the bees become adjusted to their new home.this will also keep predators out of the hive until the bees are strong enough to defend it. in the meantime Queen Boo Boo needs volunteers to come and spray the bees with the syrup until they are strong enough to go find flowers. this has been quite exciting and amazingly nobody was stung even though some of them had been a little worried. they all listen to the happy buzz of the honey bees and know they will fit in perfectly at the royal birdy castle. Queen Boo Boo says and the best part is we will now have fresh organic honey.tonight we celebrate the royal guards dressed as bees standing at attention while Lizzie unfolds a outdoor table loaded with all kinds of honey candy,honey cookies, honey cake, honey wax to chew, honey for your tea or booze whatever you prefer, plus honey based skin creams. there also is a table set with the finest royal china.whatever you

takes Cheyennes wing and leeds her around the birdy castle garden and explains all about the honey bee queen and bees they will be getting soon. Queen Boo Boo Bought them on ebay. first we had to find good spots for the hives. we have built these boxes called supers for the bees. the opening must face the south east so the honey bees can get the early sunlight. the supers are protected from the harsh winds blowing from the north and northwest with plenty of shrubs like forsythia, ilex and juniper. we dont want the little honey bees to get too cold or too hot so we are placing the supers under shade trees so that they get dappled sunlight and not full or direct sunlight. first we built a base with cinder blocks and then surrounded that wit pretty brick so it looks nice. then the super is built with layers of board and planks in a box. we can add on to it as the hive gets bigger but for now its best to go with small. i am very excited about the bees arrival and hope you will be here at the castle when we release them. it will be so much fun. i have to check with UPS to find out the expected shipping date

  Hi Cheyenne
one more thing about spiders……... Spiders

You should always keep a spider
At least one in every room
Give them a little corner
With an offering of food

They'll spin away at night
And they'll hunt for you by day
Keeping your house clean of pest's
In their very special way

So do not go hard with insect spray
When bluebottle's and flies come your way
Remember the little spider's
Who hide themselves away

  Hi Cheyenne
Every day, animals are put into critical danger when their natural habitats are jeopardized by human activity. Together, we can protect the one earth we all rely on.

I am the Earth
And the Earth is me.
Each blade of grass,
Each honey tree,
Each bit of mud,
And stick and stone
Is blood and muscle,
Skin and bone.

And just as I
Need every bit
Of me to make
My body fit,
So Earth needs
Grass and stone and tree
And things that grow here

That’s why we
Celebrate this day.
That’s why across
The world we say:
As long as life,
As dear, as free,
I am the Earth
And the Earth is me. ?
love Queen Boo Boo

  Hi Cheyenne
i didn't get to go outside yesterday. mom messed up on the blogs. she was tired and didn't proof read it and somehow included Coris blog in mine. i don't wear a harness and always go outside in my cage and mom sits there with me and reads the paper or a book. good news that Jenny Lynn is allowed back on bird channel but not until May.

the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers announced a plan to kill 16,000 double-crested cormorants who it believes need to die simply because they eat fish.The Army Corps plan on targeting cormorants on East Sand Island, which is located near the mouth of the Columbia River. The spot is considered an important point for migrating salmon, but it’s also an important nesting site for cormorants and a variety of other birds.

The island is home to the largest double-crested cormorant colony in the west, the largest Brown Pelican roost in the Pacific Northwest and the largest Caspian Tern colony in the world. It has also been designated as an internationally recognized Important Bird Area by both the Audubon Society and the American Bird Conservancy.Bird and wildlife advocates raised serious concerns that the proposal was cruel, wasteful and pointless, and used these birds as scapegoats for problems affecting salmon that are caused by humans – namely dams and habitat loss. The plan could have dire unintended consequences for cormorants who may be doing well on the island, but aren’t thriving elsewhere, which could push them towards needing endangered species protection.

Criticism brought by researchers from Oregon State University who were hired by the Army Corps to study the bird population on the island. They say the Army Corps ignored their findings and isn’t using the best available science in its plan to protect young salmon.Despite widespread opposition from the public and scientific community, the Army Corps announced it has finalized its decision to reduce the number of cormorants targeted, but will still kill nearly 11,000 of them and destroy more than 26,000 of their nests to reduce their numbers by more than half.They still have to get permits from the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (FWS) to begin, bringing in contractors from the notorious Wildlife Services to start the killing this spring.A lawsuit could shut down the plan and save cormorants from this massive slaughter.The Audubon Society of Portland announced its Board of Directors has voted to sue both the Army Corps and the FWS if permits are granted.

well it went to 87 today so dad had to put on the a/c. problem was he forgot to take the cover off of it outside but mom got to it before the whole unit burned out. this afternoon mom went to take me outside for some sun. first she had to towel me because i was biting her. then she got the harness on me and when she took me out to the perch i was shaking. mom thinks maybe i felt to exposed because none o the leaves have come out yet. anyway tonight i was fine.

Jenny Lynn has been thrown off of bird channel again. please contact I5 publishing and say you want the flock reinstated

I'm so glad mom is feeling so much better! That's great news, we are all happy to hear it.
Thanks to Aunt Denise for my derby pic! I'm ready for the Milonga Derby now.
Today mom cleaned and fed the bats again. I know, old story. After she finished with them, she went in to the kitchen area to help label and sort the baby shower donations. All the food items need expiration dates in sharpie so everyone can see them. She dated as many cans and jars as she could, put away paper towels, toilet tissue (used for baby bird nests), latex gloves, and garbage bags as well. There seem to be a lot more donations this year.
Tonight mom will be going to dinner with a friend of hers from NY city. He's in town for a few days, and mom hasn't seen him for about a year now. It will be good to catch up. Mom thinks he retired this year, he taught Italian at the Fashion Institute for many years.
I hope you are having a good day and getting some good weather, as well as lots of cuddles and scritches. Hugs, Falco

Remwmber my April Fools day letter stating all chemical company CEOs are aliens intent on destroying the earth as we now know it?
Right before Our Eyes
It would be unbelievable. If it weren’t true.
Just 15 days after the World Health Organization said that glyphosate, the key ingredient in Monsanto’s Roundup, is a probable human carcinogen, our friends at the EPA signed off on additional uses of a new herbicide containing glyphosate. Dow’s Enlist Duo, concocted from a deadly mix of 2,4-D and glyphosate, can now be used in nine additional states. That makes 16 states whose citizens will be directly exposed to more glyphosate (with a dash of 2,4-D, a chemical used to make Agent Orange).

Dow rejoiced at the news. And immediately said it would seek approval of the product in even more states.

This is what we’re up against. Corporations willing to poison everything in sight

  Hi Cheyenne

the kitty is feeling much better today. he is over 15 and does pretty good for his age. no more diarreah or vomit and he is eating and drinking. mom is thinking maybe there was something wrong with the can of cat food she had given him because the other cat just slept most of the day and was very quiet. today they are much more alert. mom quit giving them their yearly vaccinations because she has found older cats don't handle them well at all. the vets don't like this but have told mom on the side that they don't vaccinate their older cats either especially since they don't go outside or have contact with other cats. mom swears vaccinations killed her last 2 balinese cats even though they lived to be 17 & 18.

  Hi Cheyenne
all the blogs disappear. its making it very hard to talk to our friends. it does seem that BC is slowly starting to come back so we shall see how it goes

there is a developer who is building these extremely ugly and expensive super giant houses on a former farm right below our house. all their utilities are underground with the latest fiber optic equipment. our neighborhood has regular telephone poles and this new equipment is wrecking havoc on us. comcast says they can't find a problem but every time this developer starts with the underground cables for his plan, which we call the pit since it is below us and the developer removed every tree and shrub and the idiots who are buying these houses are not planting any, we have sporadic if at all cable service and our lights are now flickering.

today mom woke up to find our older cat foaming at the mouth and covered covered in poo on his hind end and legs and vomit and diarrhea all over the bedroom. mom gave him a bath and blow dried him and he was not happy. then she cleaned up the mess. she took away all water and food and started giving him 6cc of pedialyte every hour. he hasn't made any more diarreah and made a solid poo the size of a jelly bean. tonight he ate a small amount of cat food and is now sleeping.

We are getting rain today. When mom started out on the dog walk, she left the umbrella because it was not raining at the moment. She should have known to carry it to ward off the rain, haha. The walk wasn't too long, for sure, because the rain started soon after she left.
Today looks like laundry day. Lots of table linens as well as the usual stuff need to be cleaned. Later mom will scrub cages, we think. She does that all too often to suit us, but what can I say? We are waiting for the contractors to call with prices on the kitchen, too. Hope they call soon. Mom is off today and tomorrow, which is good, because her left eye is still pretty sore from yesterday. This will give her a chance to rest it, in between laundry and cleaning, haha.
Hope you are having a great day and getting some spring weather, as well as lots of cuddles and scritches. Oh, mom posted a pic of the pastel deviled eggs, so you can see how cute they are. They were all eaten, so must have tasted good, too. Hugs, Falco

Thanks for the congratulations. I had a great time in the castle with Queen Booboo, we hid Easter eggs all over the place. Hope you find some, they had some neat prizes inside. Thanks for staying with us and helping us to party!
Mom had 14 for dinner today, and they began to arrive around noon. Dinner was served at 2, and there was plenty of food for everyone. Mom sent home care packages with nearly everybody, too. People were gone by 8, so we have a little time to blog. Hope your Easter day was all you wanted it to be and that you had a good celebration.

  Hi Cheyenne
There is a pleasure in the pathless woods
There is a rapture on the lonely shore
There is society, where none intrudes
By the deep sea, and music in its roar:
I love not man the less, but Nature more,
From these our interviews, in which I steal
From all I may be, or have been before,
To mingle with the Universe, and feel
What I can ne'er express, yet cannot all conceal. -

  Hi Cheyenne
in trying to encompass my blogs for my campaign i have come up with this-----
the greatest thing you can do to reduce carbon emissions and combat global warming is to stop eating meat and go veggie. if the desire for meat is to overwhelming try roadkill. it is very plentiful and found along all roadways and doesn't cause horrific suffering at slaughterhouses. also remember to save your poop for future heat and fuel resources. also all CEO's of Exxon, Shell, BP,etc, Monsanto & Dupont are aliens from another planet intent on destroying earth as we now know it, by their fracking, constant oil spills, pipelines, non-stop plastic containers, chemicals and complete contamination of our drinking and water supplies.. they are very prolific and their offspring are Keurig K-Cups which live on a floating waste pile of plastic, in the Pacific Ocean, which is twice the size of Texas. if the K-Cups were lined up they would encompass the earth 10Xs. Alex from the LaHabra Flock asked about killer Bees. Killer Bees were introduced into Brazil in the mid 1950's by a scientist trying to breed a bee pollinator that was better suited to tropical places. the killer bees do pollinate but they also tried to kill all the native honeybees. Monsanto and Dupont gleefully said they would help by developing a poison so toxic it not only kills all the bees but the trees and plants as well. since this was hurting the Mexican drug cartels profits they have banned the poison in Mexico. to this day the US government is still spraying in south and central america in the 1980s a few killer bees hitched a ride on a Brazilian oil freighter and landed in Southern California where once again the conquering bees tried to wipe out the native bees. a few bees managed to mate with some of the native queen bees producing offspring that aren't as warrior like as the killers but not sweet like a honey bee but they are still pollinating so leave them alone. the month of April is hug a tree month so if you can't plant a tree go hug one and keep developers from chopping more down for shopping malls

  Hi Cheyenne
Birds can be helpful to each other in many ways. The most familiar form of cooperation is when an owl or hawk appears in the neighborhood, causing every songbird within a quarter of a mile to sound alarm calls and even dive at the predator. Perhaps the most interesting form of help is when young birds of the first brood of the year help their parents raise the second brood of the year. There have been many reports of juvenile eastern bluebirds carrying food to the nesting houses containing their parents’ second brood.American crows and Florida scrub-jays demonstrate some of the same cooperative behavior, when sexually immature one-year-olds help their parents gather nesting material, protect the territory, and carry food for the next generation.Cooperation occurs among acorn woodpeckers of the Far West, when groups of up to 10 birds live together, year-round, jointly defending the communal territory, gathering food, and together incubating eggs and feeding the nestlings of each pair in the group.

Sometimes birds of different species lay eggs in the same nest. This has happened among American robins and northern cardinals. The two species take turns incubating eggs, sometimes sitting side-by-side, and jointly feed the young when they hatch.There are also adoptions. For example, a male Carolina wren started feeding an incubating female house wren. When the eggs hatched, the male Carolina continued by feeding the babies, causing both of the true parents to desert, leaving the rearing of their young to the foster father.

This is my last day of my campaign and I want to thank all of you for your help in making my campaign a success. it has been so much fun visiting with each of you every day. i apologize for not being able to answer all your comments individually but i did read every one and enjoyed them very much. i love you all so much.

  Hi Cheyenne
this is a continuation of birds intelligence from blog on 3-27. we messed up on the order.
Examples of bird intelligence include…
Carrion crows in Japan that deliberately place nuts in roadways, wait for cars to crush the nuts then retrieve the nut meats, all while coordinating around traffic lights to keep safe.
Woodpecker finches in the Galapagos Islands that trim sticks to the proper length for use as tools to forage for insects.
Green herons and other heron species that use bread fed to ducks or picnic leftovers as bait to attract fish for their hunting.
Blue tits in the 1920s that learned which color of milk caps on delivered milk had the most cream (whole milk) and pierced those caps to drink the cream.
Western scrub-jays that hold funerals for dead birds by making loud noises and avoiding the corpse, behavior that may be warning other birds of fatal threats.
Northern mockingbirds that recognize individuals who may be a threat to their nests and will attack only those individuals rather than attacking all passersby indiscriminately.
Aplomado falcons that hunt cooperatively in pairs and thereby increase their hunting success by a large margin through this teamwork.
Jays that cache hundreds of seeds and nuts in fall and manage to retrieve the majority of them over the course of the winter, exhibiting great recall for their hiding places.
Other well known examples of bird intelligence that could be attributed to instinct but still show at least some higher mental capability include:
Amazing nest architecture with intricate construction
Returning to the same ranges, even the same nests, for many years
Ability to navigate migration safely despite changing landmarks
Play behaviors, including taunting cats or playing with objects for entertainment
Recognizing who refills feeders and interacting with that person
Curiosity when responding to pishing or investigating new stimuli
Showing emotions through courtship, caring for nestlings, etc.
Some Are Smart, Some Are Stupid
Like any animal, not all birds are equally intelligent. Ornithologists generally agree that corvids (jays, ravens, crows, rooks, jackdaws, etc.) and parrots are among the smartest bird species and that social, gregarious birds often exhibit more intelligent behavior than solitary species. Still, every backyard birder has seen that one "stupid" bird at their feeders who just can't figure anything out, while another bird of the same species seems to be an Einstein in comparison. Watching birds and witnessing their intelligent behavior can be a joy for backyard birders, and learning more about bird intelligence in quantifiable ways is sure to keep ornithologists busy for decades to come.

  Hi Cheyenne
The Purpose of Play
All play that wild birds may use helps them develop necessary survival skills. Even adult birds may continue to play and refine their abilities, though not necessarily with the same frequency as juvenile birds play.
Manipulation play helps birds get more coordinated to build nests, capture prey or extract food from different sources. This type of play keeps bills and talons in good condition and builds up the necessary muscle strength and dexterity for intricate actions.
Investigation play teaches young birds about the world they inhabit, including edible and inedible foods and what objects are safe to touch. As birds investigate more, they refine their ability to cache objects and develop their senses.
Chasing play strengthens wing muscles and helps young birds develop greater agility in the air, or for terrestrial birds, strengthens their legs and helps them be more agile when running. This also helps carnivorous birds develop sharper hunting skills.
Taunting play sharpens a bird's reflexes and increases their agility. It also helps them learn to anticipate prey reactions or how to avoid predators, and will be useful for mobbing behaviors or defending their territory.
Balancing play strengthens foot and leg muscles and helps birds learn how to use their wings to counterbalance air currents or disruptions. Balancing can also be useful for different types of foraging or courtship displays.
Curiosity play teaches birds more about their world, expanding their knowledge of both threats and benefits and helping them react to the unexpected. Curious birds can be more adaptable and will be more successful when encountering changes in their habitat.
Mimicry behavior teaches young birds how to act like adults of their species and learn essential skills such as proper sounds and songs or how to use their unique bills or other physical attributes to the best effect.
While different play behaviors all have a purpose in helping birds survive, some birds do seem to play just for the sheer joy and fun of the activity. As with many types of bird behaviors, the exact purpose of all play is not yet understood, even by dedicated ornithologists, but birders can still enjoy watching the playful behavior of birds. Every time they see their feathered friends engage in another game, they learn just a bit more about birds even as the playing birds are learning more about their world.

  Hi Cheyenne
We just love your Jedi (our baksetball coach)'s crest.
Thank you so much for the honor of BOTD. I was surprised when mom said it was so! We have so seldom been able to get on BC.
Got any pics of that chick?

Your queen for the day,

Birds That Play
All birds engage in playful behaviors, and more intelligent bird species need greater amounts of the mental stimulation that comes from play as they develop. Bird species that can seem especially playful include…Jays, crows, rooks, ravens, magpies and other corvids,Parrots, parakeets, macaws and Keas,Tits, chickadees, nuthatches and small finches,Gulls, terns and related species.
Many social and adaptable birds also play, as do young birds of nearly all species as they socialize with their siblings in the nest. The extent of play and how much play each bird species carries into maturity varies, and different birds engage in different types of play to help them develop a range of skills.
Types of Bird Play
There are many different behaviors birds engage in that could appear to be play. The most common playful actions include…
Manipulation: Using the bill or talons to drop, toss, bend, tear, rip or otherwise manipulate objects, even objects without any food value.
Investigation: Seeking out unique objects or trying a wide range of different foods, continually noting new objects and poking or prodding them.
Chasing: Following one another in short or acrobatic flights, or chasing other objects such as insects or fluttering leaves.
Taunting: Teasing or deliberately harassing one another or other creatures, such as teasing a domestic cat or instigating fights.
Balancing: Swinging, swaying or dangling on wires or weak branches, possibly releasing and reattempting different acrobatic actions.
Curiosity: Responding to pishing or other unique noises, such as being attracted by ringtones, mechanical noises or music.
Mimicry: Imitating an adult's behavior, including physical actions such as foraging or preening as well as songs and sounds.
Not all playful birds will engage in the same behaviors, but they often try different actions and activities as they are learning new skills and refining their abilities. Play may be only between birds of the same species, while some types of play, particularly chasing or taunting, may be between birds of different species.

  Hi Cheyenne
Birds do a lot of activities that may seem smart, but how much of their behavior is instinct instead of intelligence? Ornithologists are continually studying birds and learning new information about their brains, how they think and why they behave why they do.

Deciding just how smart birds are depends on how intelligence is defined. Birds exhibit a wide range of intelligent behaviors, including good memories, extensive communication, planning for the future and remembering the past. Some birds can solve problems, and others have been observed playing – both activities that indicate more than just basic instinct. The Merriam-Webster Dictionary defines intelligence as:The ability to learn or understand or to deal with new or trying situations or the ability to apply knowledge to manipulate one's environment.
Do birds do this? Scientific studies indicate that yes, birds do learn, and every backyard birder knows birds are capable of adapting to new environments and conditions. Quantitative measurement of bird intelligence is difficult because birds cannot take intelligence tests or attend classes to be measured with their peers. Observations and studies of birds are revealing that birds may be far more intelligent than initially believed.
Bird Brain Structure
Brain size and structure is not an automatic gauge of intelligence, but it can be a clue. Birds may be small, but they have a proportionally large brain compared to their overall body and head sizes – in fact, bird's brains are similarly proportioned to primates. Studies of birds' brain anatomy also suggests that while the structure is different than that of mammals' brains, birds may have a higher degree of connectivity between the sections of their brains, which could indicate more intelligence and faster reasoning than previously believed.
Evidence of Bird Intelligence
The best indication of how smart birds are is direct observations of birds acting intelligently. While some observations have been made under scientifically controlled circumstances and through laboratory experiments, other observations have come from casual birders who notice their favorite birds behaving in peculiar ways, ways that seem planned and premeditated.
