?I just listened to a report from the science show on radio national. A
couple of guys found an injured magpie at their house with its leg
wrapped in fishing line. They freed its leg and released it. Some time
later, the magpie returned with a second magpie with an identical injury.
Did anyone hear it? It appears to be an example of a high degree of
deductive logic in birds ? or pure coincidence.
BTW, there is a delightful video at
showing a new Caledonian Crow using stones to raise the water level in a
jar in order to get the floating worm. I believe these belong to the same
broad family as Magpies!
