"This month, Heinrich and his colleague, Thomas Bugnyar, published an article
in Scientific American that explores the intelligence of ravens. In this
article, they investigate the question; do the birds consciously contemplate
alternative behaviors and choose the most appropriate ones, or are they merely
relying on instinct or learning to perform specific actions by rote?"

Great comments, too.
