I thought it was really funny and unusual, so I had to share
with ATS.
Birds have been used by humans for different tasks before, so I guess it could be possible...but not very probable.



Ankara investigating possibility that bee-eater was 'implanted with Mossad surveillance device'; Israeli wildlife officials say accusation ridiculous



According to a Tuesday report in Yedioth Ahronoth, an investigation to that effect was launched in Ankara several days ago, after a farmer discovered a dead Merops Apiaster, commonly known as the European Bee-Eater, in his field. The bird had a ring reading "Israel" on one of its legs.



The band, however, was not the most damning piece of evidence against the bee-eater: Its nostrils were.

The bird-beak in question reportedly sported "unusually large nostrils," which – combined with the identification ring – raised suspicions that the bird was "implanted with a surveillance device" and that it arrived in Turkey as part of an espionage mission.

Armies have used birds in war fare forever.

The Us army has an extensive animal training program using animals in vital roles in the field.

Completely plausible story
