Or a nut. Several bird species use some pretty clever ways to break open nuts. Like crows have been on camera dropping walnuts in to traffic on purpose so the nuts get run over. They then wait for a gap in the cars to swoop down and collect the goods.

Being a bird must be suffering. They're some of the most intelligent animals on Earth and understand some advanced concepts like tool making and fun, but lack the arms, hands, and fingers required to actually craft anything that can amuse them. So you get them trying poorly to bounce a ball but of course a bird can't dribble it, or like >>2658 where they just want to slide but have to do it in the more basic and bare bones way.

Aren't most birds pretty stupid?
I thought crows and the like were exceptions, not the norm.
>>
>>2689
There's a lot of variance depending on type of bird, but generally corvids, parrots, and vultures are considered to be above the rest.
>>
>>2689
1. psychometrics is still in its infancy even for man, much less for bird.

2. most studies on birds use brain to body size ratio or EQ, both are ineffective when comparing non-mammalian creatures.

3. most studies on corvid or psittiacine intelligence rely on observational experiments.

4. Most birds on earth are not accessible in a laboratory setting to researchers.

5. Problem solving abilities seems to be present across multiple bird lineages. Tool use in birds can be demonstrated in passerines, columbiformes, galliformes, psittacines, charadriiformes, accipitriformes, falconiformes, piciformes, and several dozen other families. This represents a broad range of polyphyletic clades in which problem solving ability has either been retained from a common ancestor or evolved independently. Many of these clades are understudied in the literature. Crows and magpies and parrots are sexy, woodpeckers and ducks are not. Confirmation bias also plays a role.

I don't trust anyone's assessment of their animal's intelligence. People are just not good judges of intelligence, not in their own species, and certainly not in other species. Many times the bird is smarter than they. Many times they're just regurgitating what the latest meta analysis told them. Remember that when you hear someone judging intelligence in an animal, it's invariably copypasted Google Scholar knowledge.

Unfortunately for those who do copypaste Google Scholar, knowledge does not work like this and science always marches on.

Lanius is latin for butcher. It's pretty appropriate for a shrike, which prepares the animals it catches

Now I'm good and mad.

There's some sort of tweety bird outside my window in some tree somewhere- singing.

What's he got to be so happy about? There's cats, hawk and children infesting this neighborhood everywhere.

Doesn't he know death looms around every corner? Doesn't he know the winter will return and deprive him of food for months? Doesn't he know the whole world is a terrible, awful place for everything, and the most miserable thing about it is the horrible people in it?

He's not getting my bread. I barely have groceries till payday. I got more peanut butter than jelly. I don't even have enough milk for all my cereal. Ants are in the kitchen and whole damn world is coming apart, blatant communists on tv and with nothing but the feathers on his head, this bird has the NERVE to sing just because the sun FINALLY came out.

YOU'RE NOT GETTING MY BREAD YOU JOLLY SONOFABITCH, YA HEAR?!? I WONT TOLERATE THIS CRUEL TAUNTING FOREVER!

Interesting. I've seen birds relish a practical bath, but didn't know their wiring actually could render idle 'play'. I have seen curiosity, social desire, even problem solving, but didn't know they could 'play'.
