Muy Interesante

I was reading one of my favorite magazines "Muy Interesante" today. There was an article about birds & how some species can recognize themselves in the mirror. How do the scientists know? Well, they put a powder mark on a spot on the birds' heads that they can't see unless they look in a mirror. When the birds saw their reflection, they noticed the spot & cleaned it off. Pretty amazing. Looks like birds don't get as much credit as they deserve.

I think most animals are more intelligent than we give them credit for. In our egocentric view, all beings that we cannot communicate with are deemed less intelligent. Perhaps they have already figured out what we still struggle to understand...
