She looked longingly at my cuttlebone and whispered, "I wanna cracker". Moments from now, I knew, we would make sweet, passionate love. The kind of love that rouses the heavens and storms the depths. A primal coupling.

Or at least we would have, if this d-bag bird in my mirror wasn't all up in my face and frontin'. And what's that over there? Hey! Free gravel!

Crows have been shown to make tools out of bits of wire. They even time their action by the changing of street lights to crack nuts they take from trees in the crosswalks to avoid getting hit.

Never underestimate the bird brain. A friend heard ravens on his roof as he was leaving for work one morning. As he was going out the front door, he noticed one of the birds was perched on the rain gutter with its tail feathers hanging over the eves. He thought it would be funny to grab the birds' tail, which he did. The bird squawked and pulled away leaving my buddy with a hand full of tail feathers. He thought that was the funniest thing he'd ever seen until the next morning when he was leaving from work. The birds had paid him a visit in the wee hours and repainted his truck in crap.

I misread that as 'cows'. I knew about the crows. I was worried about the cows though. We don't need large mammals competing with us, fighting for their bovine freedom, holding their large heads high.

I'm a little bothered that this article mentions that they filmed the tool maker but failed to post a link to the video. If cockatoos can make tools surely reporters can create links?

1: Cows still don't have opposable thumbs. I'm not that worried about them even if they do achieve Mensa IQs.

2: No, cockatoos are much smarter than your average reporter now. I'd even say cockatiels are smarter than roughly 75% of reporters. Probably 95% if you waved something shiney at them.
