Maybe a little bit off topic, but has everyone seen the video of a crow not only using, but making a tool to get its food? Truly amazing!

Anyway, birds are truly intellegent creatues. I wonder if these parrots could be trained to eat "bait" that was left out, instead of th sheep?



I've seen that video.
I guess scientists were wrong when they said only Man makes tools.

"Nah mate , I'd rather have a lamb steak , make it blue please squark!!!"


Can't we ship a few to the UK to start feeding on the flying rats that are called pigeons or the #ehawks that are called seagulls????

I never knew these birds existed up until reading this. Didn't expect a bird of that size to go after a sheep. I realize that farmers are losing livestock, however these birds are doing what they need to do to survive and believe that they are entitled to that. I'm glad that they're protected.

They appear to be really smart birds, with amazing problem solving capabilities. I found this video on YouTube while researching them, it almost looks like it's trained, but still impressive.
