A recent article published on the BBC website (http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/sci/tech/8023295.stm)summarises their cognitve abilites known to date. The avian cognition group led by Professor Nicola Clayton and Dr. Nathan Emery have a number of exciting articles coming to press in the near future. Watch this space!
